Nano Bio Spectroscopy Group (ETSF)


Under the leadership of Professor Angel Rubio, the group activities are focused on the field of theory and modelling of electronic and structural properties in condensed matter and on developing novel theoretical tools and computational codes to investigate the electronic response of solids and nanostructures to external electromagnetic fields. Present research activities are: new developments within many-body theory and TDDFT, including ab-initio description of electron excitations, optical spectroscopy, time-resolved spectroscopies, and lifetimes; novel techniques to calculate total energies and assessment and development of XC functionals for TDDFT calculations; improvements on transport theory within the real-time TDDFT formalism; characterization of the electronic and optical properties of solids, nanostructures (in particular nanotubes, nanowires and semiconducting -clusters-) and biomolecules.
