In the Computational Physics Laboratory of Tampere University we carry out basic research in physics, while offering also methods and numerical tools to multidisciplinary challenges. We develop theories and methods, implement computational software, and utilize large-scale supercomputers for numerical simulations.
In basic research, the we aim at further understanding of the physical properties of materials, nanostructures, quantum mechanical and complex dynamical systems. For this purpose, we develop both classical and quantum mechanical models, methods and numerical algorithms and software. The long-term applications include, for example, next-generation quantum transistors and magnetic memory devices. The computational tools and statistical methods developed in the group are also actively applied to interdisciplinary research in, e.g., material science, health technology, and econometrics. In this respect, our laboratory can serve the scientific community in all topics that involve challenging computational tasks and problem solving.
