Theoretical & Computational Solid State

Theoretical and Computational Solid State Physics research focuses on condensed matter theory. In particular, on the physical properties of low-dimensional systems like films, surfaces, multilayers and nanowires, and on the magnetic, transport and mechanical properties of carbon-based materials.

Other work centres on the electronic structures of oxides, especially magnetic oxides and defects in oxides as well as the optical properties of reconstructed semiconductor surfaces. The electronic structure of materials, in particular of magnetic materials and of organic/inorganic interfaces, are explored and computational methods are developed for ab initio quantum transport at the nanoscale.
