International Workshop on Computational Physics and Materials Science

11.12.2007
Progress in Computational Electronic Structure Theory
Gustav-Stresemann- Institut Bonn, Germany

This workshop will highlight recent advances in the calculation of electronic structure of real materials and catalyze the exchange of ideas between the fields, ranging from method development to applications.

In the spirit of the previous workshops in the series, it will bring together practitioners from different parts of the electronic structure community and strive to enable the exchange of ideas between the fields. The focus of the workshop will be on correlated systems, with special emphasis non the modelling of real materials and on quantum Monte Carlo techniques, as well as on the understanding of novel superconductors.

Workshop organizers:
Erik Koch (FZ-Jülich)
Eva Pavarini (FZ-Jülich)

Background of the Workshop
This workshop is part of the series of International Workshops on Computational Physics and Materials Science: Total Energy and Force Methods, which started in Oxford (1983) and Braunschweig (1984), and is continued biennially in Trieste (1987, ..., 2005, 2007). In-between the Trieste workshops, Mini-workshops are organized (2004: Paris, 2006: Cambridge) to review the state-of-the-art in Computational Electronic Structure Theory. The present workshop continues that tradition.
Workshop venue and format
The 2 1/2 day workshop will give ample time for discussions of the invited presentations and contributed posters. To allow for intense and informal discussions, the number of participants will be limited to 50. The venue is the Gustav-Stresemann-Institute in Bonn, which is conveniently reached from Cologne/Bonn airport.

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
