I would like to gain knowledge about how DFT calculations can be specifically used in the subject of electrical engineering. It would really help if people in the community can direct me towards scholars or professors or scientists who are actively working on it. I would really like to follow them.

  • $\begingroup$ DFT only work for atomistic systems. IF you are interested in studying properties (optical, electronic, IR, RAMAN, etc.) it can useful. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Camps Sir I meant what areas of Electrical engineering can DFT touch. Such as I was reading a paper titled "The performance limits of hexagonal boron nitride as an insulator for scaled CMOS devices based on two-dimensional materials". So I want to get acknowledged about such topics which might be energy conversion or energy storage. DFT used to solve questions of Electrical performance as a final goal. I want to follow such researchers in the community. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2023 at 8:39
  • $\begingroup$ Did you ask this on EE.SE? You don't seem to have asked any questions there but I can't see deleted questions. I asked it here. I am curious though, if you can tell us why you are asking this question? $\endgroup$ Oct 12, 2023 at 17:07
  • $\begingroup$ @NikeDattani I did not think of asking the ques on EE.SE. I am asking this ques basically because I am studying interdisciplinary topics from subjects of Electrical engineering, Material science, Physics and DFT computation. As I was researching I wanted to find some space where discussions on these topics happens together interlinking their concepts. For example I am doing some DFT calculations on semiconductors which can be used as solar cell materials, then if they can be synthesized - How does an electrical engineer approach it after analysing the properties found via DFT calculations. $\endgroup$ Oct 16, 2023 at 7:05
