Postdoc position in implementation of advanced electronic-structure methods for theoretical core-level spectroscopy

A fully funded postdoc position is available in the junior research group of Dr. Dorothea Golze at Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden, Germany). The position is initially limited to 3 years with the option of extension.

Virtual School on Electron-Phonon Physics and the EPW code

Dear All,

We are happy to announce that on June 14-18, 2021 we will hold the 2021 Virtual School on Electron-Phonon Physics and the EPW code. This is the second event of a series that started in 2018 with the International School on Electron-Phonon Physics from First Principles, which was held at the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste.

Accurate non-covalent interactions from models for the Møller-Plesset adiabatic connection

The adiabatic connection (AC) that has as weak-interaction expansion the Møller-Plesset (MP) perturbation series has been recently shown to have a large coupling-strength expansion in terms of functionals of the Hartree-Fock density. Based on these findings, in this talk, I will introduce functionals that approximate directly the MP AC by interpolating between MP2 and the large-coupling strength limit. These functionals have the same cost as double hybrids and capture non-covalent interactions (NCI) very accurately, without using dispersion corrections.

Quantum transport through Ge-vacancy defects in silicon for application in quantum technologies

Special points in silicon have been envisioned as suitable components for quantum information technology. Conventional dopants, as phosphorus, have been already adopted to realize qubits, although their shallow energy levels limit their operating temperature to few Kelvin [1]. Identifying new defects with deep energy levels in the silicon gap would allow qubit operations up to room temperature, by preventing their ionization.

Remote electron-phonon interactions and screening in Van der Waals heterostructures

Stacking up 2D materials has proven to be a promising strategy to enhance or engineer the properties of materials for (opto)electronic applications. In order to select the right layer combinations and design optimal heterostructures, one first needs to understand the fundamental interactions between electrons and phonons in those systems. Beyond what happens within the individual layers, it is especially important to model and simulate the remote, interlayer aspects of electron-phonon physics.
