Development of Density Funtional Theory models for an accurate description of electronic properties of materials possessing potential high non-linear optical properties

Project: Research

Project Details


The proposal aims to develop density functional theory (DFT) towards a better description of excited states and optical properties of materials, in particular non linear optics. The main topics concern:
  • development of new DFT functionals for a better adaptation to the description of optical properties.
  • integration of know-how from post-Hartree-Fock computations of (hyper)polarizability into DFT calculations.
