We are currently looking for a Hiwi to develop a graphical tool for visualizing and edditing supermolecular structures.
Here you will find a more extended description.
Anderson Transitions and Quantum Criticality in Novel Materials: Topological Insulators, Graphene and Friends
Disorder of some kind is a ubiquitous encounter in any macroscopic solid. From the fundamental point of view it creates novel material classes where interference, quantum phase transitions and the physics of rare events dominate the phase diagrams.
Molecules represent classes of quantum dots that exhibit unique properties. A profound fundamental interest is especially in molecular systems close to instabilities, because the latter tend to leave a pronounced effects on the transport characteristics.
Molecular Materials and Their Cooperative Phenomena
Molecular Materials comprise a broad class of solids including graphene, supramolecular structures and hypothetical metamaterials. Their cooperative properties are rich, tunable and can often be obtained quantitatively with sophisticated ab intio methods.
