To support quantum modeling activities [based on the time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT)] of the Department of Scientific Laser Applications, the group of Ultrafast Photonics led by T. J.-Y. Derrien obtained today 6.95 millions core-hours of computational time in one of the supercomputers of the PRACE EU network (project FRECUENCIA).

Along with the project FLAMENCO (3.8 million core-hours), this computational time will be employed for resolving the dynamics of electrons in solid materials upon ultrashort laser irradiation in various experimental situations. The project also aims at testing the tools for employing more effective formalisms for the study of laser-matter interaction in future.
