Theory of excitations in low-dimensional systems

Since April 1st, 2020, part of the group has been relocated to the Unversity of Oldenburg.


Welcome to the website of the EOS Group! EOS_logo.png
In the ancient Greek mythology, EOS was the goddess of dawn. Here, it stands for Excitations in lOw-dimensional Systems.
The interaction between light and matter is a fascinating topic with relevant techological implications in the fields of optoelectronics, photovoltaics, light-harvesting, photonics and more. When materials are tailored to the nanoscale, even more exciting phenomena take place upon their interaction with electromagnetic fields. Our goal is to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental physical processes involved in light-matter interaction and their dynamics, in view of reproducing, redesigning, and tailoring these phenomena.


Our research addresses different materials, including bulk solidsorganic materials, low-dimensional system and hybrid inorganic/organic interfaces. For this purpose, we adopt and develop advanced first principles methods, based on time-dependent density-functional theory and many-body perturbation theory.
