Nanoelectronics & Spintronics by design

cv_image_zanolli_small.JPG Dr. Zanolli research focuses on first-principles (ab initio) modeling of nanoscale materials, with special focus on topological materials and applications in nanoelectronic and spintronic devices. The  investigation of the electronic and magnetic properties is performed using ground state and beyond ground-state (GW approximation, Bethe-Salpeter equation) Density Functional Theory techniques. Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function is used to model time dependent phenomena, such as spin-polarized quantum  transport and time-dependent photoluminescence. The investigated systems include 2D materials, carbon-based nanostructures (carbon nanotubes, monoatomic carbon chains, graphene, …), hybrid organic-inorganic materials, III-V semiconductor nanowires,  multiferroics.
