Title: Using Density Functional Theory to Design New Materials. From Nanoelectronics to the Origin of the Universe
Date: Fri Sep 4, 2009
Start: 14.00
Location: FWN-Building 5116.0116
Host: M. Mostovoy

Modern computational methods are proving to be invaluable in the first-principles design of new materials with specific targeted functionalities. I will describe two examples from the field of multiferroics: The design of new materials for electric-field control of magnetism, and for measuring the dipole moment of the electron.
