Design and Simulation Group

We employ a combination of computational approaches in quantum mechanics, solid state and atomic physics biotechnology and statistical mechanics etc., to study the material structure physical and chemical properties ranging from atomic structure calculations to performance and analysis of optical and semiconductor devices. On the fundamental side, the group objective is to develop the expertise in

  • Electronic Structural Properties of atoms, molecules, clusters, nano-particles, Ions and ordered lattices of semiconductors, disordered materials, photonic band gap structures, electron transport, bioinformatics structural biology etc.
  • Device and Materials Modeling for various applications including Laser Diode, infrared (IR) sensing of photons and imaging.
