Located at



We develop multiscale models for calculating optoelectronic properties of semiconductor nanostructures (like nanowires or platelets), by combining strain and piezoelectric models  with a generalized multiband kp approach. Theoretical analysis complements consistent data-driven identification of material parameters from up-to-date ab initio band structures.
