Quantum ESPRESSO is an integrated suite of open-source computer codes for quantum simulations of materials using state-of-the-art electronic-structure techniques, based on density-functional theory, density-functional perturbation theory, and many-body perturbation theory, within the plane-wave pseudopotential and projector-augmented-wave approaches. A recent JPCM paper… Read More ›
Increasing local field enhancement factor in small clusters of emitters in close proximity
Could close proximity electrostatic effect in small clusters of emitters be used to design nanometric oscillators?
Image of the Week: Electron-phonon relaxation on the Fermi surface of Pb
This week’s image comes from a recent paper by Rittweger et al., published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, in which they investigate the electronic transport properties of face-centred cubic (fcc) bulk Pb in the presence of electron-phonon interaction. Using ab initio methods, Rittweger et… Read More ›
