THEORY DEPARTMENT
Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society
Research Group:
Heat and Charge Transport

Welcome!

The focus of the "Heat and Charge Transport" Group
is the accurate first-principles assessment of
macroscopic transport properties of bulk solids
from their microscopic characteristics.

This involves the application, improvement, and development of novel
computational algorithms for the treatment of electron-phonon coupling
both perturbatively and via ab initio molecular dynamics.
