We investigate new properties of novel materials and nanostructures from a theoretical point of view: graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, quantum dots and silicon nanoelectronics, topological insulators, superconductors and other strongly correlated systems. We describe materials and processes using model Hamiltonians, effective models, and ab-initio techniques. Both numerical and analytical approaches are used. While our approach is theoretical, we aim at understanding experimental data and making experimental predictions, with the major goal of being able to quickly react to new developments in our field and to timely tackle novel materials and problems.
Our research is funded by Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad vía “Plan Nacional”, FEDER funds and CSIC. The details can be found here.
