First-principles methods in the study of the structural and electronic properties of defects in semiconductors

Date: 15 February 2016

Venue: University of Antwerp - Campus Groenenborger - Room U.247 - Groenenborgerlaan 171 - 2020 Antwerpen

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Organization / co-organization: NANO center of excellence

Short description: NANO center of excellence seminar presented by Dr. Rolando Saniz

First-principles methods based on density-functional theory have proven to be very valuable for the identification and characterization of defects in semiconductors. We introduce the most important tools and concepts currently used for this purpose. We illustrate these with examples from research in our group. We also discuss some of the main challenges lying ahead.
