black board.jpgEleven research groups at COMP combine a variety of approaches and disciplines that are focused on researching and understanding structures and systems at the atomic and molecular levels from a material physics perspective. This fascinating field comprises a rich variety of phenomena that constantly brings up surprises in the shape of new discoveries.

Exploring Unseen Worlds

The basic strategy of COMP is to develop and apply cutting-edge theoretical and computational methods and the best available computing resources in attacking challenging problems in condensed-matter and materials physics. This includes modelling and simulation of wide classes of materials and related phenomena, ranging from novel semiconductors to biological and soft matter. The research interests range from electronic and structural properties of materials to their processing as well as to device and systems behavior.
