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

DFT and QuantumEspresso at CINaM

At CINaM together with Andres Saul and Rajarshi Sinha Roy we are organizing a series of lectures on DFT and the Quantum Espresso code. The course will cover standard DFT, functionals, psedo-potentials, surfaces, STM images, structure optimization,  etc.. Teaching material and lecture notes can be downloaded here: DFT and Quantum Espresso 1 DFT and Quantum Espresso… Read More

Quantum Espresso and Yambo input files

This is my small collection of Quantum Espresso (PWSCF) and Yambo input files that I used in my papers or for different testing purposes. I cannot give any warranty whatsoever these files are correct and fit your actual needs. Carbon nanotubes: 7×7, 4×2, 10×10, 1×10 Carbon nanoribbons: ANGR7 Diamond Donor Acceptor Complexes from ref. Appl. Phys. Lett…. Read More

How to transform a CIF file in a QuantumEspresso input

When you work with experimentalists, often you have to deal with atomic structures reconstructed from x-ray scattering in the format of CIF files. Here I briefly explain how to transform these files in a QuantumEspresso input using Mercury code. Open the CIF file with Mercury then follow the points below: 1) remove the duplicated atoms, … Read More
