Ph.D Thesis: Density Functional Theory Based Calculation of 

                Different Properties of Semiconductor Quantum Dots


Our research thrust in MATES Lab is mainly revolving around computational material science which can be called as computational chemistry with chemistry perspective or computational physics with physics perspective. In a gross view actually it's dealing with the different properties of materials in nano regime. Development of DFT code as well as its implementation towards different properties of nano field is one of our prime motivations. Hybrid Perovskites for Solar Cells and LED, Transition Pathway for Battery Materials, Nano-catalysis (HER/OER/ORR), High Pressure Physics draw most of our research attention.
