Expertise

We develop first-principles methods for the description of ground- and excited state properties of materials and use them to model and design materials for application within sustainable energy (photo-catalysis and photovoltaics) and nano (opto)-electronics. 

We have activities within the following areas:

  • Computational materials discovery including Big-Data driven approaches (machine learning, materials databases, etc.)
  • Novel 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures
  • Description of quasiparticles in the solid state (plasmons, excitons, …) 
  • Many-body methods (RPA and beyond) for high-accuracy total energy calculations
  • Charge transport and -transfer at metal/molecule interfaces, e.g. molecular electronic devices 
  • Energy materials including materials for (photo-)catalysis and photovoltaics
