Lecturer: Professor Risto Nieminen
Risto Nieminen’s research area is condensed-matter and materials physics, especially theoretical and computational methods as applied to multiscale materials modelling. He has developed widely used methods and applied them in interpreting a variety of experimental results for e.g. atomic-scale defects, surfaces and interfaces of solids and for nanoscale structures and assemblies. An important application area has been defects and doping in semiconductors and two-dimensional materials. The research has contributed to the understanding of carrier concentration and compensation, defect metastability, doping limits, diffusivity and complex formation. The work includes wide-gap and insulating materials, nitrides, complex oxides, perovskites, and chalcopyrites, as well as graphene and related materials. Large-scale computation can also be combined with extensive databases and machine-learning methods to systematically search and discover new materials.
