This month, read about a new procedure addressing the difficult problem of generating maximally-localized Wannier functions for arbitrary materials. The protocol enables the automatic construction of these functions for use in high throughput frameworks, and all codes and workflows have been distributed through a virtual machine that allows researchers to perform their own simulations, either with different parameters or on new materials.
Congratulations to two MARVEL principal investigators whose excellent work has been rewarded: Philipp Werner receives the Charpak-Ritz Prize 2020 and Giovanni Pizzi is this year's laureate of the Rodolphe and Renée Haenny Prize.
This month, you can also get to know a new PI joining the NCCR MARVEL team: Prof. Ana Akrap , from the University of Fribourg.
For your calendars, there’s the MARVEL Junior seminar tomorrow, June 26, and the AiiDA introductory tutorial in early July. Note also the CECAM weekly webinars series continuing as soon as this afternoon.
Be well and keep in touch. We look forward to seeing you soon.
