Project description

Driven by the importance and urgency of our society’s transition to renewable energy technology, this project aims to develop theoretical methods on light-matter interaction that will be used for understanding and designing efficient light-harvesting materials and photocatalysts (e.g. for photocatalytic water splitting). Electronic excited states and the dynamics of electrons and holes in various media will be investigated using Flinders University's DeepThought supercomputer.


Dr Darryl Jones and Prof Sarah Harmer

Condensed-matter theory, High-performance computing

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
