What arrangement produces a material with an optimal thermoelectric figure of merit, or a combination of magnetic and ferroelectric properties, or a high superconducting critical temperature?
CCQ is developing the methods that will answer these and related questions. We combine chemical realism with many-electron physics to develop predictive theory of the many-electron properties of materials and molecules.
