We are a young team working in the field of computer simulations for solids. We apply state-of-the-art numerical techniques, ranging from density-functional theory over many-body techniques to advanced methods like structure prediction algorithms. We apply these methods to several open questions of current solid state research, such as the properties of iron-based superconductors, thernoelectrics, or strongly-correlated systems with strong spin-orbit coupling.
The work horse of our research are computational packages, such as VASP, Quantum Espresso, Wien2k, or TRIQS. In addition to applications, we do not only apply those methods but spend time and money also to further develop our tools.
