Paul Erhart

Professor, Condensed Matter and Materials Theory, Department of Physics

Paul Erhart graduated from Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany) in 2006 and was first a post-doctoral researcher and later a staff member at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California (USA). He joined the faculty at the Department of Physics at Chalmers in 2011.
My research group applies el­ec­tro­nic and at­omic scale mo­del­ing techn­iques to study the fun­da­men­tal pro­per­ties of com­plex ma­ter­ials. Our current research is focussed on:
  • Electrical and thermal transport properties
  • Thermodynamics, kinetic, and plasmonic properties of nanoparticles
  • Molecules for solar thermal energy storage
As part of our research, we also develop models and methods for atomic scale simulation in particular for the description of multi-component systems.
