A training day for PhD students and early career researchers will be held on day 1, followed by 2 days of contributed, poster and invited presentation.
The lectures will be given by:
Matt Probert (University of York), "Ab Initio modelling of structural and electronic properties of semiconductors"
Ben Hourahine (University of Strathclyde), "Empirical and semi-empirical quantum mechanical methods for semiconductor modelling"
Feliciano Giustino (University of Oxford, UK), "Introduction to GW: beyond density functional theory"
Jacky Even (CNRS Rennes, France), "Theory of Semiconducting Halide Perovskites"
Urs Aeberhard (Forschungszentrum, Julich, Germany), "Theory of Non-Equilibrium Green's Functions and transport in semiconductor devices"
The introductory day (11th April) is a training event intended specifically for PhD students at the beginning of their studies, with high level lectures on the most used methodologies in the field.
Topics for contribution include:
- Application of Density Functional Theory
- Tight Binding, Pseudopotential and Effective Mass Models for Electronic Structure
- Empirical Potential Methods for Calculation of Structural Properties
- Multi-scale Approaches
- Dilute Magnetic Semiconductors
- 2-D Semiconducting Systems
- Photonic Structures and Open Systems
- Optical and Transport Properties of Quantum Nanostructures including Colloids and Nanotubes
- Electronic and Photonic Devices
- System demands and applications
Invited Speakers Include
