Research interests

Fields of research interests are in the areas of Quantum Chemistry, Cluster Physics & Chemistry and Computational Materials Research.
  • Density-Functional-Theory based methods for calculations of geometric structure, electronic structure and dynamics of molecules, clusters and condensed systems.
  • Quantum Molecular Dynamics (QMD) for studies of dynamical processes.
  • Current Density Functional Theory (CDFT) for calculations of NMR parameters, as chemical shifts.
  • New clusters as building blocks of cluster assembled matter.
  • Nanostructures materials, as for example nanotubes.
  • Biomolecules concerning possibilities of abiological modification of biological materials.
  • Searches for new materials with exceptional properties, as for example superhard materials.
