Understanding materials via the laws of quantum physics

TSSP mos2 diamond3

With the equations of quantum mechanics, implemented in modern computer codes, we calculate the physical properties of materials and predict new structures.

Electronic structure and theoretical spectroscopy

The TSSP group investigates light-matter interactions on a microscopic scale. We develop and use advanced theoretical and computational methods derived from quantum mechanical first principles to describe the dynamics of electronic and atomic excitations. This enables us to analyze and predict various optical properties, such as absorption, luminescence, and resonant Raman spectra.
