The scientific research in our group is in the field of computational theoretical physics. We apply simulation techniques (Monte Carlo, Molecular Dynamics and Genetic Algorithms) and heavy quantum calculations (DFT and ab-initio) to study various properties of nano-scaled systems (atomic and molecular clusters; metal complexes; fullerens; graphene; carbon nanotubes). Clusters form stable phases, which are thermodynamically unfavored in bulk, it is possible to observe ’strange’ mixuters. Transformation to the thermodynamically stable phase is hampered by kinetics - we study the conditions for stability: this is the time it takes for a reaction to occur. Predictions of possible outputs of newly designed experimental equipments are made as well.
