Computational physics

We conduct theoretical and numerical studies on the properties of technologically important materials (semiconductors, superlattices,...) using accurate first principles methods ( FP-LAPW, PW-PP). The properties we investigate are:

Structural stability and high pressure studies

Electronic properties

Elastic and related properties

Optical and magneto-optical properties

Vibrational, dielectric and related properties

Phase transitions.
