Electronic Structure Theory

Welcome to the Electronic Structure Theory (EST) group

We are a young and enthusiastic team investigating the electronic structure of various materials, from organic molecules and crystals, to inorganic semiconductors and hybrid interfaces

The main focus of our research is on light-matter interaction processes in the static and ultrafast dynamic regime. We study excitations induced by electromagnetic radiation from the infrared to the hard x-ray spectral region. 

Our research is based on computational methods implementing first-principles quantum-mechanical approaches, such as time-dependent density-functional theory (TDDFT) and many-body perturbation theory (MBPT).
