Welcome

We are a research group focusing on computational condensed matter physics, using density functional theory, effective Hamiltonian, statistical physics, transport theory and computational techniques to investigate materials of fundamental and technological interests. We are particularly interested in the first-principles-based studies of ferroelectrics, multiferroics, thermoelectric properties, and structural transformations.

从事基础物理教学和计算凝聚态物理的研究工作。已在Science,Nature,PRL,Nat. Commun.,Adv. Funct. Mater.,PRB等SCI学术期刊发表论文60余篇,引用1500余次。担任PRL,Nat. Commun.,Adv. Mater.等学术期刊审稿人。

研究领域
计算凝聚态物理。主要研究方向包括:

  • 铁电、多铁体系:相变、磁电耦合机制、反铁电储能等
  • 热电和输运性质:玻尔兹曼方程、电声耦合、非谐声子等
