Welcome to the solid-state theory group of the Physics Department of the Humboldt-Universität Berlin. The team, led by Prof. Claudia Draxl,  is dedicated to condensed-matter theory and computational materials science, working on theorectical concepts, development of computer codes, as well their application to a variety of materials.

A particular focus is theoretical spectroscopy - the quantum-based description of radiation-matter interaction. We explore various types of excitations, like photoemission, optical and X-ray absorption, electron-loss spectroscopy, and Raman scattering. The latter connects to another core area that is electron-phonon coupling.

Actual research projects concern organic/inorganic hybrid structures, molecular switches on surfaces, thermoelectricity, semiconductor nanostructures, solar-cell materials, organic film-growth, and more. The NOMAD (Novel Materials Discovery) project concerns big-data analytics related to the NoMaD Repository, an open-access library of materials.
