Optical and Electronic Properties at the Nanoscale

Existing projects

Simulation of Low Loss EELS

A very theoretical project closely related to experiments. The theoretical description of Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) is useful in order to extract more information from experimental results. The master project started out with a lot of fundamental theory and advanced into a lot of programming and simulation. The project involved theory within electromagnetism and solid state physics.
