- The theoretical nanoelectronics group headed by associate professor Mads Brandbyge is focused on theory and simulation of electronic transport properties of nano-sized devices based on atomistic descriptions.
The Theoretical NanoElectronics Group is closely connected to the Theoretical Nanotechnology Group. We work on common projects, have group meetings together and combine our research and teaching efforts.
Current topics of interest include:
- Molecular electronics.
- Combined electron and heat transport of semi-conducting nanosystems.
- Nanoelectronics of carbon based systems (eg. graphene antidot lattices, carbon chains, carbon nanotube devices).
- Electron-phonon interactions, inelastic transport, and heating in atomic-scale conductors.
- Predicting the stability of molecular conductors in the precense of current.
