division is headed by Dr. Fabio Della Sala. Our main research interest
is Computational Nanoscience, i.e. to apply and develop computational
methods to solve physical problems relevant for nanotechnology
applications. We investigate different systems, from organic molecules
to inorganic quantum wells, using computational methods with different
accuracy/costs ratio, from first principles density functional theory
and correlated ab-initio methods to envelope function approaches.
The Theoretical and Computational division is affiliated to the
Centre of Biomolecular Nanotechnologies of the Italian Institute of
Technology (IIT) and participates to the Integrated Multiscale
Computational Technology Platform.
