Correlated Electronic Structure from Dynamical Mean Field Theory

28/10/2016 @ 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM Asia/Singapore Timezone

Speaker: Prof. Olle Eriksson
Affiliation: Uppsala University, Sweden
Host: Prof. Su Ying
Abstract Details: n this presentation I will outline the basic ideas behind dynamical mean field theory and show examples of how it can be used to describe correlated electronic structures of a wide class of materials.

Examples of materials that will be discussed are lanthanides, transition metal oxides as well as diluted magnetic semiconductors. Both ground state properties, such as magnetic moments and equilibrium volumes, as well as excited state information will be presented. The latter will be focused on valence band spectra as well as x-ray absorption spectra.

About the Speaker: Olle Eriksson received his PhD from Uppsala University 1989. After spending three years as a postdoc at Los Alamos National Lab, he returned to an Assistant Professor at Uppsala University, 1991. After a short visit as a visiting scientist in Los Alamos, 1996-1997, he became an Associate Professor 1997 and chair professor 1999. He is currently leading a research division of 90 scientists at Uppsala University. Prof. Eriksson has supervised 42 PhD students to examination and been the advisor of 26 postdocs. He has published some 600 scientific articles of which several are found in The Physical Review Letters, PNAS, Nature and Science. He has received several awards and distinctions for his work in theory of materials.
