!!! Research program

We study the physics of condensed matter systems, usually the solid state, using first principles or ''ab initio'' methods. We solve the quantum mechanical many-body problem of interacting electrons and ions to the best of our abilities, with the fewest approximations possible, and with no adjustable parameters or fitting. The cost is that the calculations must be done numerically and can be quite difficult to perform. The advantage is that the results are generally ''reliable'' and accurate, and hence can be compared with confidence to experimental findings to help understand, clarify, and even predict observed physical phenomena.

The reliability also implies that we can use ''ab initio'' computer modeling as an ideal virtual laboratory to study microscopic physical phenomena. By ideal we mean that the physical setup (atomic positions, boundary conditions, imposed fields, etc.) is specifiable and modifiable at will.

The research work in our group covers a number of areas. Broadly speaking, we are currently working on problems involving (1) electronic excitations, optical properties, and lumiescence, all via first principles methods, (2) properties of nanostructures, especially nanowires and nanotubes, and (3) the physics of transition metal oxides and their interfaces (as part of [[http://www.crisp.yale.edu | CRISP]].)

Here is a glimpse of topics:

* Electron excitation, optical response, and photoluminescence
** Solid-state defects: e.g. bulk [[sohrab/grouppage/STE.html | silica]] and GaN
** [[sohrab/grouppage/CNT.html | carbon nanotubes ]]
