Eva Rauls

Professor for Theoretical Physics

Det teknisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultet
Institutt for matematikk og fysikk
KE E-528


Research interests:

I am mainly using computational methods for investigating (macro-)molecular adsorbates, catalytic and electronic properties of single and selforganised molecules on various surfaces (like metals or graphitic surfaces).  The methods include both first principles and (semi-)empirical methods.

Currently, I am cooperating closely with the chemistry department on two new research projects. These projects include the study and functional design of supramolecular materials for gas sepration with a special focus on CO2-storage as well as the optimization of MOFs for separation and recycling of metals.
