Research Information

Research Overview

Bulk Systems and Surfaces
I have studied the dielectric and phonon properties of bulk, surface, and low dimensional systems, as well as catalytical properties. In particular for carbon based systems (CNT, diamond, graphite and graphene).

General properties, phonons, and especially catalytic growth (with Pd, Ni or other transition metals).

Phonons and Raman spectra
Electron phonon coupling, phonon spectra with spin orbit coupling. Studies on nanowires and bulk metals.

Response functions and Many Body perturbation Theory
GW theory for metallic and finite temperature systems.

Transport in molecular devices
Linear response transport formalism based on polarizability. Incorporation of GW level correlation between electrons into the calculation of the conductance.
