Main area of work
of the electronic and vibrational properties of disordered binary and
ternary alloys. The Augmented Space technique was developed by me and
used extensively by our group.
Study of inhomogeneous disorder, short-ranged order, local lattice distortions, sublattice disorder in alloys and compounds.
First Principles thermodynamics of binary alloys.
Electrical, thermal and optical response in binary alloys
- Development of a Density Functional theory for excited states in disordered solids.
- Study of transition and noble metal and bimetallic clusters. Catalysis, band-gap engineering
- Study of electronic transmission through nanowires.
