Theoretical nanoscience and nanotechnology research at METU Physics Department is being carried out since 1988. Our works comprise several applications about atomic clusters, carbon nanotubes, hydrogen storage in nano materials, biological molecules, nano-gears and nano-magnetism.
Molecular Dynamics (MD) and density functional theory (DFT) are the main tools used in our studies. Other methods such as quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) and Genetic algorithms (GAs) are also being used and investigated.
