One of Professor Dhayalan’s PhD scholars, Murugesan Rasukkannu is on short term visit for sharing his expertise knowledge on computer modelling of Nanomaterials. He is going to deliver a talk on Computation modelling of Nanomaterials for the Solar cell applications at the department of Physics, UoJ on 15.09.2017. Abstract of his talk as follows:
Abstract: Computation modelling of nanomaterials is computationally challenging, we use appropriate mathematical and computational methods to solve the problem effectively. For this task, we use the density-functional method, fully self-consistent in the generalised gradient approximation for exchange and correlation corrections and hybrid function. Our results suggest that these nanomaterials are promising host for the development of third-generation solar cells. We present here the numerical results of these nanomaterials findings a significant effect in understanding these materials and use to improve the photovoltaic properties.
