For those of you interested in getting some hands-on experience with the Questaal code, STFC Daresbury Laboratory in the UK will be hosting a tutorial course May 16-19, 2017. The full call is listed below. This workshop will be run by Mark van Schilfgaarde (main Questaal package developer), Leon Petit, Martin Lueders, and Myrta Gruening. A primary focus of the hands-on workshop will be on quasi-particle self-consistent *GW* (QSGW) theory and its applications.

papers · QSGW | Examples

Metal-organic perovskite solar cells, CH_{3}NH_{3}PbI_{3} (MAPI) in particular, have attracted much attention recently because of their high power conversion efficiency and potential low cost.

Density-Functional theory, while being immensely popular thanks to its simplicity, nevertheless is limited in its reliability. The QuasiParticle Self-Consistent GW approximation, while more demanding than DFT, is vastly more reliable than DFT, or GW theory based on DFT, for calculation of optical properties in weakly correlated systems.

Many spintronic devices to emerge in recent years consist of spin transport through alternating, nanosized metallic layers

papers · LMTO | Examples

A new concept for very fast electronic devices has emerged in recent years. Called JMRAM, it relies on the rotation of the phase of a Cooper pair wave function when it passes through a thin magnetic layer.
