The Lewis Group - West Virginia University - Department of Physics

Welcome to the homepage of the Lewis Group in the Department of Physics at West Virginia University. This group is headed by Professor James P. Lewis.

Research Interests

Our research interests cover a broad range of materials properties and phenomena, including:

  • high-throughput and data-mining material's characterization
  • band structures and electronic properties of metal-oxide semiconductor, nanoparticles, and nanotubes 
  • electronic structures and properties of bio-molecules and bio-catalysts
  • molecule-surface interactions
  • energy exchange processes and excitation dynamics
  • developing faster algorithms for local-orbital density functional theory
