Professor Peter Puschnig
I am a theoretical solid state physicist and in my group, we are dealing with ab-initio electronic structure calculations based on density functional theory (DFT) and its application crystalline solids, surfaces and interfaces. Materials of interest range from metallic alloys to organic semiconductors. In recent years, the focus has been on understanding the electronic properties of organic/metal interfaces in the framework of photoemission orbital tomography.
