Quantum transport and excitations

The group develops and applies electronic structure methods for the description of groundstate and excited state properties of nanostructured materials. We have activities within the following areas:

  1. Many-body methods for highly accurate total energy calculations
  2. Ab-initio modeling of quasiparticles like plasmons and excitons in nanostructured materials
  3. Novel two-dimensional materials like graphene and MoS2 and their heterostructures
  4. Charge transport and -transfer at metal/molecule interfaces, e.g. molecular electronic devices
  5. Energy materials including materials for water splitting and dye-sensitized solar cells 

The Danish Council for Independent Research’s Sapere Aude program is funding the project: “Quantum theory of organic interfaces for opto-electronic applications”.

We are part of the Danish National Research Foundation's Center of Excellence: Center for Nanostructured Graphene

We are part of the Novel Materials Discovery Laboratory (NoMaD)

 - a Center of Excellence under the EU H2020 e-Infrastructure programme for computing applications.
