Computational materials science applied to solid state physics
This proposal deals with theory and simulations of advanced functional materials. The planned project can be divided up into several sub-projects, that involve studies of novel permanent magnets, spin-dynamics, skyrmionics, and correlated electron systems. All investigations will be based on ab initio density functional theory based methods and in some cases, in-house codes such as UppASD for spin dynamics and RSPt+DMFT for dynamical mean field theory. Our computational need is quite high concerning the complexity of the topics and the number of users involved.
