Today, the group of Ultrafast Photonics was granted with 15 millions core-hours for the preparation of quantum simulations based on the method of time-dependent density functional theory.
This computational time will be essentially meant to run the Octopus code (TDDFT) in collaboration with Prof. François Courvoisier (FemtoST, Besançon, France) and Dr. Peter Juergens (Max Born Institute, Berlin, Germany).
Another collaboration with CSIC Madrid has also started around TDDFT and will also be part of this project.
Visitors of the Marie Curie RISE “ATLANTIC” networking action are also entitled to get computational during their visit.
While great science lies ahead, we also hope to fetch funding for improving our people’s conditions very soon.
