Materials Theory

Research at the Materials Theory programme focuses on methodological development and application of electronic structure theory, dynamic mean field theory, time-dependent density functional theory, magnetization dynamics, molecular dynamics and lattice dynamics. The applications of these methods involve functional magnets, superconductivity and material for green energy conversion (for example functional magnets, battery materials, materials for solar cell application and materials for storing hydrogen). Moreover, materials in reduced dimensions are investigated, as are driven quantum systems, semi-conducting materials and materials with correlated electronic structures. Furthermore, researchers of the programme study materials under extreme states (high pressure and temperature) as well as materials for biotechnologies.
