Main Research

Our group is working theoretically and computer supported on the following subjects:

  • magnetism in metals, semiconductors, and insulators
  • non-collinear magnetic structures
  • spin relaxation
  • atomistic magnetization dynamics of nanostructures
  • tunneling magneto-resistance and tunneling electro-resistance
  • nanowires and nanocontacts
  • scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS)
  • molecular electronics
  • oxide interfaces
  • multiferroic materials
  • thermoelectric heterostructures
  • topological insulators
  • spin-orbit coupling effects in electron spectroscopy
  • Berry-phase-related phenomena
  • anomalous Hall effect and spin-Hall effect
  • anomalous Nernst effect and spin-Nernst effect

Basic Principles

These studies base upon the following theories/methods:

  • density functional theory (DFT)
  • multiple scattering theory (Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker methods)
  • method of Green's function
  • theory of magnetism
  • electronic transport theories
  • relativistic scattering and transport theory
