Welcome to the Goerigk Research Group website. Our research at the School of Chemistry at The University of Melbourne, Australia, revolves around the exciting field of Quantum Chemistry, which is the description of electrons in chemical systems by evoking the laws of Quantum Mechanics. Our interests comprise both the development of new quantum-chemical methods, as well as applications to Organic-, Inorganic-, Physico- or Biochemical problems. We have established a range of national and international collaborations with experimental and other theoretical groups, and our research is supported by various local, national and international funding schemes. Please feel free to explore our website through the links provided in the right-hand sidebar (or at the bottom of the page, depending on your device).

The results of our collaboration with Tobias Schwabe from the University of Hamburg, Germany, have been published. We present improved versions of time-dependent double-hybrid density functionals for the calculation of electronic excitation energies. These methods belong to the best time-dependent density functional theory methods and can compete with more resource-demanding wave-function theories. For more details see: Schwabe, L. Goerigk, “Time-dependent double-hybrid density functionals with spin-component and spin-opposite scaling“, Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation 2017, DOI: 10.1021/acs.jctc.7b00386
