|Atomistic calculations of nanostructures: from semi-empirical to ab-initio approaches
|Primary and secondary scientific disciplines
|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
