Charles W. Myles, PhD

Physics Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX 
Physics, Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics, Computational Materials Physics

Charles W. Myles is a Professor of Physics at Texas Tech University, where he has been for almost 40 years. His research interests are in Theoretical & Computational Materials and Condensed Matter Physics, with an emphasis on the microscopic physics properties of semiconductors. Presently, the main computational tools he uses are first-principles (ab-initio) density functional-based electronic structure techniques. He and his collaborators are currently interested in understanding the microscopic properties of semiconductor clathrate compounds and other materials with potential for use as thermoelectrics.
