|Condensed Matter Theory|
Electron transport in mesoscopic and disordered systems, Coulomb blockade devices, and in other low-dimensional electron systems; theory of speckles of coherent waves propagating through random media.
I work on applications of time-dependent density-functional theory to laser and other electromagnetic interactions with condensed matter. Specific topics include dielectric response, dichroism, high-field response, and coherent phonon generation.
|Marcel den Nijs|
Equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and low dimensional quantum field theory, with applications to surface science, one dimensional quantum fluids and solids, and to neuroscience.
|John J. Rehr|
|FEFF and CMSN|
Fundamental condensed matter theory, aiming at a quantitative understanding of electronic structure and many-body theory, using modern high performance computational techniques.
|Theory of lipid membranes|
Modulated phases of block copolymers and biological lipids; fusion of small vesicles and organization in lipid bilayers, such as the plasma membrane.
