Department of Energy Awards New Computational Center

New Center for Computational Study of Excited-State Phenomena in Energy Materials receives $8M

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

The Department of Energy announced the award of $8M to the brand new Center for Computational Study of Excited-State Phenomena in Energy Materials today. The Center is headed up by Director Steven Louie, and includes Jeffrey Neaton and Feng Wang as team members. The Goal of the Center is methodological development of many-body theory software for single-particle and optical excitations as well as higher-order correlated processes in functional materials, with the objective to deliver state-of-the-art excited states calculations by advancing the GW-Bethe-Salpeter-Equation approach and beyond. It involves experiments at the Advanced Light Source and the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley Lab.
