International Workshop on Computational Physics and Materials Science

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.

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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
