We Do Computational Materials Science
To Understand Fundamental Materials Properties
And To Design Entirely New Materials
June 13-15 2016, Josh Leveillee attended the 2016 Blue Waters Supercomputer Symposium in Sunriver, Oregon. The goal of the symposium is to bring together National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NSCA) staff, Blue Waters researchers, and National Science Foundation (NSF) representatives to discuss cutting edge computational work performed on the Blue Waters supercomputer.
The two week program provided training in computational methods and their integration in undergraduate curriculum.
André will give a invited talk in session E2. Cheng-Wei, Josh and Xiao will present their works!
André was awarded NSF CAREER AWARD ! Let's congradulate him!
One more Physics graduate student joined in Spring of 2016
One more graduate student joined in Fall of 2015 and the first student from physics department.
Two more graduate students joined in Fall of 2014 to work on electron dynamics (Cheng-Wei) and perovskite materials (Josh).
We recently used state-of-the-art first-principles calculations to obtain accurate theoretical optical spectra for In2O3 and Ga2O3. We find clear indications of excitonic effects in these materials and we explain the optical anisotropy for Ga2O3.
Two recent publications aim at understanding certain aspects of two different classes of materials: Iodine-based scintillators for radiation detection and both n- and p-type oxides for transparent electronics.
On Petascale Day 2013 I got the chance to snap some nice photos of BlueWaters. Check them out here!
