Theoretical study of electronic properties of defects in carbon-based nanosystems

Project: Research

Description

Ab-initio study of defect signatures in graphitic systems (graphene, graphite, carbon nanotubes. After a determination of atomic structure close to the defect, we computed the electronic structure by ab-initio and semi-empirical (Tight-Binding) methods. We will then analyse the spectroscopic signatures of an ensemble of defects.
