VP1 - Novel Materials Physics

In the Vertical project 1, Novel Materials Physics, we focus on the design of materials in which the fundamental physics and resulting functionalities are determined by strong interactions between individual electrons, or by new and emerging phenomena, such as topological properties of their band structures. As an additional challenge, the accurate description of these materials requires the development of methods by the Horizontal Project 3 that could also later be used in high-throughput material design.
