Quantitative electron and spin transport theory for organic crystals based devices (QUEST)
Date du début: 1 déc. 2012, Date de fin: 30 nov. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

"Predicting the electron and spin transport properties of organic crystals is a formidable theoretical challenge as these are determined both by the electronic structure of the individual molecules and by the morphology of the crystal. Quest's research program seeks at developing a fully quantitative theory for electron and spin transport in organic crystals, which does not rely on external parameters and can be applied to materials underpinning a multitude of applications, ranging from organic electronics, to spintronics, to energy. In particular we aim at combining state of the art density functional theory with advanced quantum transport methods and Monte Carlo simulations. We will then construct a hierarchical computational protocol enabling us to evaluate electron and spin transport across different length scales at finite temperature, including effects originating from external fields (electric and magnetic). Our developed tools will form a software package to be distributed freely to academia."
