Computational School on Electronic Excitations in Novel Materials Using the Yambo Code


Computational School on Electronic Excitations in Novel Materials Using the Yambo Code

The Computational School on Electronic Excitations in Novel Materials Using the Yambo Code, introduces participants to post-DFT simulations, in particular many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) approaches and provide training in the calculation of electronic and optical properties of materials. The program will offer theoretical and technical lectures, as well as dedicated hands-on sessions where the students… Read More

The story of Academic Publishing: from Galileo to Nature


The story of Academic Publishing: from Galileo to Nature

I was invited to give a seminar at the conference of young Italian researchers. At this conference I will present a  talk on the story of academic publishing. I will briflely present the story of academic publising, from the first journals to the modern publication system, passing through open access, impact factor, etc… I show… Read More

Theory of phonon-assisted luminescence


Theory of phonon-assisted luminescence

In this presentation I present the theory of phonon-assisted luminescence, in terms of non-equilibrium  Green’s functions and time-dependent perturbation theory. We derived a simple formule for light emission in the limit of low excited carriers including excitonic effects and then included coupling with phonons by time-dependent perturbation theory. This approach is then applied to the… Read More
