2. Coherence effects, order, and defects in materials • 3. Advanced characterization (multi-modes) • 5. Chemical processes-dependent on nano- and meso-scale dimensions • 12. Theory and simulation of phenomena • 13. Materials and devices for solar energy conversion

General Area(s) of Research: Solid-state and materials chemistry

Description of potential projects for CINEMA applicants: Synthesis, discovery, and characterization of new strongly correlated electronic materials, magnets, and superconductors for energy applications. This could involve preparatory chemistry work, structural characterization, characterization of physical properties, and/or density functional theory calculations of the electronic structure and properties, as preferred by the visiting scientist.
