October 17, 2018 11:02 AM
Dr. Ataca, assistant professor of physics, and his collaborator Prof. Brenda Rubenstein from the Department of Chemistry at Brown University win a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to accurately predict optical, electronic and magnetic properties of low-dimensional materials and engineer them for next generation opto-electronic device applications.

Dr. Ataca’s research includes computational modelling of multi-dimensional materials for energy applications based on Statistical, Solid-State and Quantum Physics.

Please see the UMBC news release for more details.
