Efficient Approaches for Electronic Transport in Complex Materials

Frank Ortmann


Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology-ICN
  Spain  






Novel materials or compounds are a key for future technological innovations and hold great potential for new applications. To assess the functionality of such materials, experiments are essential but simulations on realistic models (which include relevant interactions and target realistic sample sizes) can bring much deeper insight. In particular, describing charge transport is a central task for materials theory aiming at a comprehensive understanding of basic properties of novel materials. This includes particularly the interaction with different types of disorder which is always present. I will present recent results from efficient order-N electronic transport approaches developed to tackle with complex materials subject to different kinds of disorder and interactions, including ordinary longitudinal transport, magneto-transport, Hall transport, and polaron transport which are observed experimentally in inorganic and/or organic materials.

Brief Bio:

Frank Ortmann studied Physics at the University of Jena where he also graduated in 2009. He was then PostDoc at the French Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives Grenoble supported by a Marie Curie fellowship from the European Commission. At present Dr. Ortmann is holding a PostDoc position at the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology-ICN Barcelona.
