First-Principles Simulations of Electronic Transport and Electrocatalysis of 2D Materials
Department of Mechanical Engineering and Texas Materials Institute, The University of Texas at Austin
Computational methods based on quantum mechanics (first principles) are powerful tools to obtain atomic-level understanding of materials and processes. Here I will show two examples, where we develop and apply first-principles methods to understand (1) why 2D semiconductors generally have low electron mobility [1,2,3], and (2) the active site structure and kinetic mechanism of single metal atom embedded in graphene for electrochemical CO2 reduction and oxygen reduction [4,5,6].
