Computing allocation in CSCS granted for my project !

Our first computing grant was just accepted by the CSCS! Last year I submitted a project requesting for 700 thousand computing nodes hours to run an exploration over hundreds of molecules. These systems are candidates to test under pressure, and upon doping for the potential to become high temperature superconductors. Last march 24th (2017) our …

International collaboration demonstrates reliability of quantum simulations for materials design

An international collaboration with colleagues from over 30 universities and institutes to investigated to what extent quantum simulations of material properties agree when they are performed by different researchers and with different software. Thanks to an online collaboration, they successfully demonstrated that the most recent generations of codes agree well, in contrast to earlier generations. …
