Panaghiotis Karamanis serves as an Associate Researcher Class 1st at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) France, at the Groupe de Chimie Théorique et Réactivité, ECP, IPREM UMR 5254, as well as at the Université de Pau et de Pays de lʼAdour. He received a B.S. degree (1998, chemistry) from the University of Patras and a D.S. degree (2004, quantum chemistry) from the same university. His research interests are among the theoretical determination of electric multipole moments of molecular systems; systematic study of electronic structure, nonlinear optical property correlation; design of molecules with enhanced first and second dipole hyperpolarizabilities; electric properties of halogenated hydrocarbons; accurate calculation of electric polarizabilities and hyperpolarizabilities of atoms and small molecules, electric polarizability, and hyperpolarizability charge transfer complexes; electric polarizability and hyperpolarizability of organometallic compounds; structure and electric (hyper)polarizabilities of metal and arsenic clusters; construction of Gaussian basis sets to be used in theoretical studies of electric properties and molecular clusters; structure and electric (hyper)polarizabilities of small and medium sized homo and heteroatomic semiconductor clusters; construction of gaussian basis sets to be used in theoretical studies of electric properties of semiconductor clusters; study of the importance of pseudo-Jahn-Teller interactions in the determination of the equilibrium geometries of metal and semiconductor clusters; property oriented artificial cluster assembled materials; theoretical and computational investigations of atomic clusters and quantum mechanical design of superatomic building blocks of novel nanomaterials.
