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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
