Welcome to the Materials Theory group in Trento

Our activity concerns the theoretical understanding of the physical and chemical properties of materials. A fingerprint of our work is the development of new theoretical and computational approaches from first principles. Topics of choice are light-matter interaction, the electron-phonon coupling, anharmonicity and superconductivity. We focus on 2D and quantum materials, systems close to instabilities (structural, charge density waves, magnetic and superconducting) and materials for energy conversion and harvesting.
