Material sciences deliver new material classes like topological insulators or graphene; the nanosciences provide measurements of single molecules and atoms. We investigate such systems with computational means. Our emphasis is on transport and dynamics, recent research topics include:
|Ultrafast Dynamics||Quantum Critical Phenomena||Molecular Electronics|
Congratulations: Johannes Dieplinger receives a PhD scholarship from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation! In his PhD, he investigates quantum many-body effects bridging between theoretical toy models and many-electron systems with experimental realizations.
Led by Prof. Repp and Prof. Lupton (both UR), an experimental breakthrough has been achieved in measuring the energy transfer between a single oxygen molecule and a dye molecule. While first theoretical steps have been taken with success, a detailed understanding is yet to be worked out.
