Research collaboration receives PRACE computational allocation award

October, 2021

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) recently awarded 43 computational awards as part of its 23rd call for proposals. The collaboration led by Prof. Marina Filip which aims to understand excited state properties of chemically and structurally complex layered perovskites using state-of-the-art first principles computationa modeling has been awarded more than 40 million core hours on the Marconi100 supercomputer at CINECA Italy. This collaboration includes, in addition to the Filip group, co-investigators from the University of Twente (Prof. Linn Leppert), Yale University (Prof. Diana Qiu), Weizmann Institute of Science (Dr. Sivan Refaely-Abramson) and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Dr. Mauro Del Ben). More details about this award can be found here.

Research collaboration receives a renewed DOE INCITE allocation award

December, 2020

The US Department of Energy awarded 51 high impact computational research projects through the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program, open worldwide. The project "Novel Methods for Complex Excited-State Phenomena in Functional Materials", led by Jack Deslippe at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, with co-PIs  Steven Louie, Jeffrey Neaton (UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab), Jim Chelikowski (UT Austin), Mauro Del Ben (Berkeley Lab), Felipe Da Jornada (Stanford), Diana Qiu (Yale), Sivan Refaely-Abramson (Weizmann Institute of Science) and Marina Filip (Oxford) was awarded 400,000 node hours on the Summit supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Lab.

Research project receives John Fell award

July, 2020

Our project entitled "Computational Design and Discovery of New Optoelectronic Materials" has been awarded a grant of £100,000 by the John Fell Fund, to support the purchase of an in-house high-performance computing cluster. This investment will provide core research equipment for our group which will sustain our activity across a broad range of research directions.

Research collaboration receives a renewed NSF - XSEDE allocation award

March, 2020

The project "Predictive Excited-State Calculations for Solids using Many Body Perturbation Theory Based and Optimally Tuned Range Separated Hybrid Functionals" led by Jeff Neaton (UC Berkeley) and Marina Filip (Oxford U.) has been awarded 163,000 node hours on the Stampede2 supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas at Austin, through the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) program of the National Science Foundation. This award is approximately equivalent to $281,546 and will support our efforts to develop new computational frameworks for the accurate prediction of quasiparticle band gaps in semiconductors and insulators.
