Quantum effects in complex systems: summarizing remarks

Author affiliations

Abstract

Quantum mechanical phenomena such as coherence, spin dynamics, and tunneling have been observed in biological, electrochemical, polymeric, and many other condensed phase processes. This paper summarizes the diverse contributions to the Faraday Discussion on quantum effects in complex systems. Various processes exhibiting quantum mechanical behavior were examined using advanced spectroscopic and theoretical methods. An emerging theme was the critical importance of feedback between experiment and theory, particularly in the form of experimental testing of theoretical predictions.
