Granted supercomputer project in Europe’s fastest supercomputer!

Our second computing grant in CSCS (Swiss National supercomputer) has been accepted. For the following 2 years we will have access to 1.4 Million computing node hours in the fastest supercomputer in Europe!  This supercomputer is hosted by the Swiss National Supercomputing centre(Italian: Centro Svizzero di Calcolo Scientifico; CSCS)  which is the national high-performance  computing …

Transparent copper iodide: possible dopants.

In our most recent work, the zinc blende (γ) phase of copper iodide –which holds the record hole conductivity for intrinsic transparent p-type semiconductors– was studied using a high-throughput approach. Eight impurities suitable for n-type doping were discovered. Unfortunately, our work also reveals that donor doping is hindered by compensating native defects, making ambipolar doping …

Review on high-Tc superconductors at HP: Methods and Materials

I am very excited to show you my latest work that have been on parallel for over a year.  Especially, last 4-5 months have been of intense –insane– work. The number of hours invested in this work were many more that those original planned. I wish to thank to my collaborators and the great team …

New playground materials: Magnetic nitrides Perovskites

In our most recent work, we propose nitrides in perovskite type structures with magnetic rare-earth metals. These materials appear to be thermodynamically stable and, in spite of possessing different crystal structures and different atomic environments, they retain the magnetic moment of the corresponding elemental rare-earth metal. We find both magnetic metals and semiconductors, with a …
