Fields of Scholarship
  • Methodological research on the electronic properties of polymers and development of computer programmes (POLYMOL, PLH, VEH) for calculating band structure and properties of polymers
  • Role of long-range electrostatic interactions and analysis of the interplay between electronic (de)localisation, exchange effects, size of energy bands and the importance of electronic correlations

  • Theoretical interpretation of X-Ray (ESCA) or UV-induced photoelectron spectra of polymers and their use for the explanation of substitution, conformation and disorder effects
  • Theoretical design of highly conducting organic polymers and molecular engineering of polymeric materials of interest in nonlinear optics
