Condensed Matter Theory

The working group of Prof. Dr. Christian Heiliger uses ab initio methods, e.g. density functional theory, to calculate the properties of solids. The description of transport phenomena (electrons, phonons, ions) is one focus of the group. Further, we investigate the electronic and vibrational properties of oxide semi-conductors. In particular, our interest is in the understanding of Raman spectra. A main part of the work effort is devoted to method development.
