This talk will be focusing on presenting an overall panorama regarding the combination of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science and Applied Engineering to achieve Material Science fundamentals and it┤s applications. The emphasis will be usage of computational code and software to determine fundamental characteristics (electronic structure) of semiconductor devices with special focus on energy materials. The talk will also present several cases of study for semiconductor (MoS2), superconductor (Bi2212) and photovoltaic materials (TiO2/Organic), which includes nanoparticles, nanotubes, thin films, superconducting tapes and sensors.
