Mott solar cells: impact
ionisation and phonon heat dissipation.
Here you will also use and develop A Dynamical Mean Field Theory code which also includes the effects of a time periodic perturbation to investigate photovoltaic effects in correlated Mott insulators and their interplay with phonons.
Correlated materials out of
equilibrium from first principles
In this thesis you will use a combination of the TransSiesta code and the so-called Auxiliary Master Equation approach developed in our group, to study transport properties of correlated materials out of equilibrium.
Simulation of Quantum Transport across a simple model
for a correlated Quantum Dot.
In this thesis you will use and further develop a code based on so-called Matrix-Product States and the Quantum Master Equation to calculate the properties of electrons moving across a correlated impurity ( a simple model for a quantum dot)
Transport in correlated interfaces and
Here you will use and further develop a code within Dynamical Mean-Field theory to treat correlated heterostructures out of equilibrium
Machine learning approaches for the optimisation of
nonequilibrium impurity problems
The approaches used in the above projects require the optimisation of the so called nonequilibrium hybridisation function in a large parameter space. Here you will devise and develop efficient methods and strategies based on machine learning to deal with this problem. This part will be carried out in combination with one of the above projects.
The master work can be started even during the Corona-Crisis via digital communication
