Welcome to the international research group

Nonequilibrium Nanostructures

The research group is at the forefront of fundamental research on time-dependent nanostructures and small correlated systems. Aspects of nonequilibrium features in current nanodevices are investigated. The aim of the group is the description of nonequilibrium phenomena in finite systems. Experiments on very short time scales are characterized by transient phenomena like the formation of correlations and quasiparticle excitations far from equilibrium. The development of reliable methods is of great importance for designing and fabricating today's nanostructures. Properties of strongly interacting condensed phases of fermions and bosons in nano-structures and atomic traps will be investigated theoretically with a variety of different and complementary techniques. These approaches will be compared to the Greens function method where especially the pairing properties and BCS-BEC transitions are in the focus. For the finite size effects the density functional theory will be used as additional reference method. The questions anticipated to investigate are: The goal is an improved understanding of recently manufactured nanostructured superconductors. Nanowires are anticipated to be fabricated from different materials up to organic molecules. These devices are aimed to have a fast response and possessing transport properties well controlled. The group simulate and investigate new materials for such nanostructures.
