The ETSF is a knowledge center for theoretical spectroscopy nanotube and a network of researchers carrying out state-of-the-art research on theoretical and computational methods for studying electronic and optical properties of materials. The ETSF gathers the experience and know-how of more than 200 researchers in Europe and the United States, facilitating collaborations and rapid knowledge transfer. Highly efficient computational software plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between theoretical methods and real applications.

Forthcoming events

"HoW exciting! 2020" is a workshop on excitations in solids. It will take place from July 23-31, 2020 at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin,
Campus Adlershof, and is now open for registration.

The event comprises:

  • Keynote lectures covering introductions to density-functional theory and many-body perturbation theory
  • Hands-on course on the exciting code
  • International conference on excitations in solids, covering most recent theoretical advances together with the forefront of experimental research.

We encourage participants to submit abstracts for contributed talks or for poster presentations.

The number of participants is restricted to 70.

Limited financial support is available for young scientists (PhD students and young post-docs).
The deadline for regular registration and request for financial support is May 1, 2020.

For details about registration, abstract submission, financial support, and all up-to-date news on "HoW exciting! 2020", please visit our website:

Job offers

2 PhD positions at U Utrech in topological materials or exciton physics/theoretical spectroscopy

We invite applications for two PhD positions at Utrecht University in first-principles modelling of topological materials or exciton physics/theoretical spectroscopy.

The research programme will be carried out in the team of Zeila Zanolli, at the Condensed Matter and Interfaces Group at the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science. The research concerns the use and development of advanced first-principles (ab initio) techniques to model nanoscale materials, with special focus on topological materials and applications in nanoelectronic and spintronic devices.
