Professor Haynes's group develop and apply new computational methods appropriate for performing accurate first-principles quantum-mechanical simulations of nanomaterials, mostly within the ONETEP code [www.onetep.org]. In particular they are interested in methods to calculate electronic excitations of molecules and nanocrystals in solution. Recent highlights include: 1. Unravelling the Roles of Size, Ligands, and Pressure in the Piezochromic Properties of CdS Nanocrystals, Corsini NRC et al., Nano Lett. 17, 1042 (2017) [doi.org/10.1021/acs.nanolett.6b04461 ] 2. Predicting solvatochromic shifts and colours of a solvated dye: The example of nile red, Zuehlsdorff TJ et al., J. Chem. Phys. 146, 124504 (2017) [doi.org/10.1063/1.4979196 ] 3. Single-electron induced surface plasmons on a topological nanoparticle, Siroki G et al., Nature Commun. 7, 12375 (2016) [doi.org/10.1038/ncomms123752016 ]
