The group is developing methods to treat and understand magnetic phenomena involving spin-orbit coupling from first principles. In particular:
- Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions
- Quantum anomalous Hall insulators
- Magnetoelectric coupling
- Magnetism and excitons in 2D materials
The group members continuously contribute to the development of the electronic structure code GPAW, which is the main work horse for our calculations.
The project “Chiral magnetism from mean field theory” is sponsored by the Danish Council for Independent Research.
