Nachwuchsgruppe Dr. Samir Lounis

Functional Nanoscale Structure Probe and Simulation Laboratory (Funsilab)


Our group is dedicated to the theoretical treatment of tunneling spectroscopy features and explores solid-state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions of nanoscale atomic structures arranged on surfaces ranging from clusters of a few atoms to larger islands with various sizes.

Our central scientific goals are the theoretical understanding, the description and prediction of their structural, dynamical, electronic, magnetic, and transport properties by developing and applying quantum mechanical simulation tools based on the density-functional theory.

Here are some of our most recent publications:
