Electronic structure of nanomaterials

The electronic and chemical structure of carbon materials are highly dependent on the hybridization of carbon atoms, but also on their functionalization and their nanostructure. We are also very interested in the effect of solvation on their electronic and chemical properties.

Several classes of materials are investigated in our group:
