Responsible coordinator of the module PH1407 is Karsten Reuter.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Seminar talks by students on current topics in the field of research. In particular applications and methodological (DFT, MD, MC, kMC) developments in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, hybrid nano-materials,
photo- and electro-catalysis, metal-organic frameworks (MOF), and solid-state battery materials are addressed.
After successful participation in the module the student can use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about recent topics in the field of research.
Introductory Quantum Mechanics, Many-Body Theory, and Statistical Physics, Methodological aspects of Molecular Simulation
