Seminarium i materialteori: First principles study of organic compounds for rechargeable batteries
We approach the problem of computational crystal structure prediction by employing the framework of the density functional theory (DFT) together with an evolutionary algorithm and the basin-hopping algorithm. A good option for testing the reliability these techniques in finding stable crystal structures is to investigate rechargeable batteries. Due to the ionic (de)insertion, upon charge and disch

Seminarium: Galactic chemical evolution of neutron-capture elements at low metallicity
Observations of old, cool stars are excellent tracers of the most pristine neutron-capture process nucleosynthesis that the Universe experienced. Through high-resolution spectra detailed information on the exact chemical composition locked up in old stars can be unveiled. Combining the chemical abundances of several elements provides the most useful observational insight into the formation process

Charged higgs bosons and fat jets in ATLAS (PhD half-time seminar)
In the seminar, a search for heavy charged Higgs bosons using data recorded by the ATLAS detector is presented.
The hadronic decay products from heavy resonances tend to merge into massive jets (fat jets). A method for estimating the jet mass resolution uncertainty using simulations is presented.
The seminar is a summary of Max' results from the first two years of his PhD studies.

Seminarium: Production of Lambda-Lambdabar pairs in e+e- annihilation
The seminar describes how one calculates the cross-section distribution for e+e- annihilation into Lambda-Lambdabar pairs. The reaction is assumed to proceed via vector-meson intermediate states, exemplified by the photon and the J/Psi meson. The hyperons are detected indirectly through their N-pi weak decays.
