Day 2, June 16

Computing excited-states in quantum materials and defects in solids

  • Excited states in low dimensional materials, collective excitations and quasiparticles.
  • Defects in quantum materials under excitation.
  • Electron-phonon dynamics, TD-DFT/GW, open quantum systems approaches.
