Emmy Noether funding for Jan Wilhelm
Jan Wilhelm received funding from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) within the Emmy Noether Programme. With the funding, he will establish the independent junior research group "Computational Electronic Structure Theory". The goal of the group is to better understand ultrafast processes in semiconductors and metals, for example the ultrafast dynamics of excitons or plasmons. For their study, the group will develop computational methods to propagate electrons and nuclei in time. In collaboration with RUN colleagues, the new junior group aims at exploring ultrafast phenomena on their intrinsic femtosecond time scale and nanometer length scale.
