Atomistic calculations of nanostructures: from semi-empirical to ab-initio approaches

Investigator

Title of the project Atomistic calculations of nanostructures: from semi-empirical to ab-initio approaches
Primary and secondary scientific disciplines physics, chemistry
Description of the project Characteristics and main objectives of the research project:

·                     I aim for atomistic calculations of detailed spectral properties of various realistic quantum dots and nanowires.

·                     I plan to utilize semi-empirical tools such as the empirical tight-binding method coupled with the configuration interaction method.

·                     This will be an important step forward, spanning a bridge between the traditional world of solid state theory and the realm of quantum chemistry

The project is conducted in cooperation with: KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
