Modeling of catalytic surface reactions under exploitation of phase transitions

  • To find possible applications in catalysis calculations of the surface properties of different VO2 phases and the influence of doping using periodic surface models with GGAs and hybrid functionals
  • Investigation of adsorption properties of molecules on the surfaces
  • Modeling of phase transitions and reactions using the (solid state) nudged elastic band ((ss)-NEB) method
  • Single point DMFT calculations
