    Mario del Popolo has been nominated Honorary Professor at QUB. A former Lecturer in Applied Mathematics, and member of the ASC, this nomination gives continuity to many long-standing collaborations, in particular through the MSCA-RISE project, "ENACT". Congratulation Mario on a well-deserved achievement!

  4. October, 2016
    ASC welcomes Javier Troncoso who will be working with Jorge, Myrta and Tchavdar on thermoelectrics.

  5. 13 October, 2016
    Congratulations to graduate student Peter Rice on his recent work just published in ACS Nano. This work could lead to much cheaper and energy efficient materials for LEDs, for applications such as smart phone displays.

  6. 3 October, 2016
    Congratulations to Dr. Carles Triguero for his latest published work, "Origin of scale-free intermittency in structural first-order phase transitions". Read it in Physical Review B, here.

  7. September, 2016
    ASC just made the cover of Nanoscale with a novel theory for excited state dynamics on photo-voltaic devices. This work was in collaboration with Harvard University, Stanford University and Queen’s University Belfast, led by Elton Santos.

  8. August, 2016
    Elton Santos has been awarded an US-Ireland grant funded by the Department of Education and Learning (DELNI), in collaboration with Prof. Valeria Nicolosi (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) and Manish Chhowalla (Rutgers University, USA). The project will focus on the study of a new class of two-dimensional materials for data storage and spin-reading properties for the next generation of hard-drives and magnetic devices. There will be a PhD studentship and a postdoc research fellowship available. See Opportunities for the ASC positions.

  9. August, 2016
    Congratulations to Peter Rice on his first paper recently published in Nano Letters regarding the control of materials transparency using electric bias. The paper has been covered by several press articles at AAAS,, and

  10. July, 2016
    Tyndall National Institute (Stephen Fahy and Ivana Savic) and ASC are starting a collaboration on the simulation of thermoelectric materials, funded by Science Foundation Ireland (RoI) and Department of Education and Learning (NI). The team will include 2 postdoctoral researchers + 2 PhD students at Tyndall, and 2 postdocs + 1 PhD student at Queen's. See Opportunities for the ASC positions.

  11. 7 April, 2016
    Daniel Dundas and Peter Mulholland have been awarded 39,000 kAUs on the ARCHER service from the ARCHER Resource Allocation Panel. This resource will be used over the next year in a project entitled “Dissociative ionization of the hydrogen molecular ion”.

  12. 26 February, 2016
    Congratulations to Abigail Wardlow who has just published her first paper: High-order-harmonic generation in benzene with linearly and circularly polarized laser pulses, Phys. Rev. A 93, 023428 (2016).

  13. 28 January, 2016
    Valerio Rizzi, Tchavdar Todorov and Jorge Kohanoff have published a new microscopic method for coupled real-time quantum electron-phonon dynamics, in their article, "Electron-phonon thermalization in a scalable method for real-time quantum dynamics".
