    The Computational Materials Science Group at NREL performs state-of-the-art theoretical calculations to develop the scientific basis for selection and optimization of the materials used in modern optoelectronic device applications.


    This is a growing area of computational physics.

    Field of optoelectronics is interesting - http://www.nrel.gov/basic_sciences/technology.cfm/tech=8

    This is my area of study in materials science. Currently I'm doing Ab Initio calculations on ground state properties of PbSe quantum dots. Computational Materials Science has become a hot area of study now that PC's have become more powerful.
