    Sammanfattning : First principle electronic structure theory is used to describe the effect of crystal binding on radiation detectors, electron transport properties, and structural damage induced by intense irradiation. A large database containing general electronic structure results to which data mining algorithms can be applied in the search for new functional materials, a case study is presented for scintillator detector materials.

  3. 3. Electronic Transport in Materials

    Författare :Velimir Meded; Susanne Mirbt; Ingrid Mertig; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Electronic Structure; Ab initio; Condensed Matter Theory; Hydrogen; Boltzmann Transport Equation; Magnetism; Alloys; Fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Transport properties within the Boltzmann transport equation for metallic multi-layer structures as well as bulk materials, were the prime topic of this work. Ab initio total energy calculations for Hydrogen loaded metallic multi-layers were performed in order to shed some light onto problem of H depleted layers at the interfaces that have been experimentally observed.
