The objective of this project is to study the physical properties of new materials, using "state of the art" ab initio methods, focusing in nanosystems. Our group already has "expertise" in this area, and we plan to give continuity to previous projects considering two main points: i) Understanding and functionalizing materials, such as: structures 0D, 1D and 2D made of carbon, zinc oxide, silicon, boron nitride, etc... (ii) Development of algorithms to understand the properties of nanoscale systems such as charge transport, electron-phonon interaction, thermal properties, dual-gate devices, the inclusion of spin-orbit in transport phenomena, and electron transport in the formalism of Time-Dependent-DFT.
