Group type: Theory

Research description: We investigate new properties of novel materials and nanostructures from a theoretical point of view: graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, quantum dots and silicon nanoelectronics, topological insulators, superconductors and other strongly correlated systems. We describe materials and processes using model Hamiltonians, effective models, and ab-initio techniques. Both numerical and analytical approaches are used. While our approach is theoretical, we aim at understanding experimental data and making experimental predictions.
