Computational Condensed Matter Physics (CCMP) Group
University of Arkansas
We carry out research in the field of computational condensed matter physics. Our current interests mainly lie in developing and/or using direct first-principles methods, first-principles-based techniques and semiempirical approaches to calculate properties of ferroelectrics, magnetic compounds, multiferroics, semiconductors, nanostructures and graphene.
Recently, we have also been interested in analytical derivations allowing to understand complex phenomena (e.g., spin-current model, various Hall effects and the inverse Faraday effect) via the recently-proposed coupling between angular-momentum density and magnetic moments .
