Theory of Functional Energy Materials

Prof. David Egger

Research Field

We conduct research on atomistic theories of functional materials that drive energy devices such as solar cells. One goal of our work is the discovery of new energy materials which would, for example, allow for a more efficient conversion of sunlight into electricity. To this end, we develop and apply various theoretical methods, such as electronic-structure and molecular-dynamics techniques. These are used for calculating the properties of molecules, solid-state materials as well as nanostructured interfaces.
