Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to to compute the electronic structure of solids and its surfaces by employing ab-initio program packages and to interpret the calculated results.

Subject of course

Diese Projektarbeit wird in Zusammenhang mit den laufenden Forschungsprojekten im Bereich der Electronic Structure of Solids and Surfaces des Institutes für Angewandte Physik nach Vereinbarung durchgeführt. Dabei ist ein definiertes Arbeitsprogramm zu bewältigen, und die Ergebnisse sind methodisch einwandfrei darzustellen: die Projektarbeit dient der Vorbereitung zur Diplomarbeit.

Teaching methods

Introduction to using ab-initio program packages for solving the Schrödinger equation by means of the Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package.

Mode of examination




Examination modalities

One has to cope with a defined work program and the results need to be presented in the form of a methodologically flawless written report.
