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.
Andrew Millis is co-director of the Center for Computational Quantum Physics and associate director for Physics at the Simons Foundation. He has done fundamental research on heavy fermion compounds, quantum phase transitions, ‘colossal’ magnetoresistance materials and high transition-temperature superconductivity.
