We work both in the development of simulation techniques and in their application to different problems.
- Computational and theoretical condensed matter physics.
- Complex solids and liquids, using first-principles molecular dynamics based on density-functional theory and on linear-scaling density-functional theory.
- Nanoscale oxide heterostructures including multiferroics, liquid water, and water/solid interfaces, and non-adiabatic processes related to radiation damage of materials.
The nanoGUNE Theory group led by Emilio Artacho is focused on the European project ESC2RAD to better understand the damage of solar and cosmic radiation on astronauts, spacecrafts and solar panels of satellites.Read more
