First-principles investigation of electron-phonon interactions in novel superconductors

Abstract:

Despite over 100 years of scientific research, a full understanding of superconductivity remains elusive. While it is known that the electron-phonon interaction is responsible for the formation of Cooper pairs in conventional superconductors, many superconductors exhibit behaviour suggestive of more exotic pairing mechanisms.

In this thesis, two novel superconducting materials are considered, monolayer transition metal dichalcogenide, MoS2, and iron-based superconductor, ...
