Two fully-funded, four-year PhD positions are available in the ASC. The deadline for applications is 5 March 2021. Click here for more details.
Congratulations to Chris McCooey, whose paper, Curl maps in nanowires, has just been accepted in Physical Review B.
Congratulations to Elton Santos and Mathias Augustin who, in collaboration with several world-class groups, have won the 2002 Charles Hatchett Award. This award, for research in the science and technology of niobium-based materials, was won for their paper: “Ultrahigh-current-density niobium disulfide catalysts for hydrogen evolution” in Nature Materials 18, 1309–1314(2019).
The manuscript, entitled “Effect of intrinsic defects on the thermal conductivity of PbTe from classical molecular dynamics simulations”, has just been accepted for publication in J. Phys.: Condens. Matter. The journal link will be included in the publication list soon. In the meantime the article can be accessed at https://arxiv.org/abs/1811.09319.
Myrta Gruening, Dan Dundas, and Gareth Tribello have been promoted to Senior Lecturers. It is a day of great joy for the ASC and a coronation of many years of hard and inspiring work. Congratulations on a well-deserved recognition.
Last week three researchers from Atomistic Simulation Center presented their works in Boston at an annual meeting of American Physical Society. Piotr Chudzinski presented his work on ‘The influence of 1D topological states on the thermoelectric properties of Bi2Te3 from the perspective of coupled Tomonaga-Luttinger liquids (TLLs).’ , Pablo Aguado-Puente presented study of ‘Electronic properties … Continue reading “ASC at APS March Meeeting 2019”
Elton has just been confirmed in post as a Lecturer. We all congratulate him warmly for achieving this milestone.
