The Man Who Invented the 20th Century

It would be unthinkable to spend the summer in Serbia without visiting a museum dedicated to its most famous citizen, so Onur and I took the chance to visit the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade. In all honesty, it’s difficult

Electronic Structure of C60

Numerical calculations of electronic structure of materials are an important tool in various fields of condensed matter physics, materials science, and engineering. Today’s supercomputers allow accurate ab initio simulations of systems consisting of several thousands of atoms. One of the most successful computational frameworks in electronic structure calculations is Density Functional Theory (DFT). First-principles simulations within DFT are a major consumer of supercomputing resources in many computing centres.

Electron-Phonon Coupling

Organic semiconductors are materials of great current research interest due to their low production cost and suitability for electronic and optoelectronic devices such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes and transistors. To understand the performance of these devices one needs to understand how electrical current flows in these materials. Particles that carry the current are electrons which throughout their motion in the material interact with atomic vibrations – phonons. Therefore, understanding the strength of electron-phonon interaction is crucial for understanding the material properties.
