Nanoscale Building Blocks

Principal Investigators: Giulia Galli, Marco Govoni, Francois Gygi, Juan de Pablo, Jonathan Whitmer and Dmitri Talapin (experimentalist)

Assembly of nanoscale building blocks and structural and electronic properties of nanostructured materials for energy conversion: validation focuses on the assembly process and nanoparticle interactions and electronic properties of individual building blocks

  • III-V compounds
  • Photoluminescence spectra and energy transfer processes in nanoplatelet excimers

Codes and models to be validated

  • Screened electrostatic forces and strain fields (COPSS)
  • Electronic properties (WEST)
  • Structural properties (Qbox)
