This is the home of the Computational Materials Research group, a subunit of the Division of Condensed Matter and Materials Theory at the Department of Physics at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg (Sweden). We study ma­ter­ials for energy conversion and storage using electronic and atomic scale modeling, with the goal of improving existing and finding new materials.
