Research Profile

Research in the Materials Theory group uses a combination of first-principles and phenomenological theoreticalĀ  techniques to study the fundamental physics of novel materials that have potential technological importance. Projects combine development of new theoretical methods, application of the methods to existing materials, design of new materials with specific functionalities and subsequent synthesis of the "designer materials".

Specific materials classes of interest are:
