CP2K UK meeting

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

We are looking to relaunch the cp2k network. We had a fantastic meeting in the brand brand new Imperial College London campus at White City, see the programme here. Including talks from Lev Kantorovich on Brownian Ratchets and Marcella Iannuzzi on ‘Molecules at the solid/liquid interface: understanding experiments with simulations’. Big thanks to Clotilde Cucinotta and… Read More ›

CP2K UK Users and Developers’ Meeting – 14th of June 2019

We are happy to announce the 2019 CP2K UK users and developers meeting will take place at Imperial College London on 14th June 2019. Our aim is to illustrate the potential of CP2K and its latest developments, lower the barrier to use/develop the code, forming a platform for discussion, collaboration and exchange of ideas among… Read More ›

Physical Aspects of Polymer Science, 11-13 September

The biennial meeting of the Institute of Physics Polymer Physics Group will take place in the Isaac Newton Building main lecture theatre from 11-13 September.  The first conference in this series was held in the mid-1960s, and previous hosts have included the universities of Cambridge, Durham and Bristol.  A highlight of the meeting will be… Read More ›

New paper on Nanotubes

New paper ‘The Role of Cation-Vacancies for the Electronic and Optical Properties of Aluminosilicate Imogolite Nanotubes: A Non-local, Linear-Response TDDFT Study’ published in ‘Frontiers of Chemistry’, read it here. Another application of Sergey Chulkov’s work on calculating excited states within the CP2K code. The work pushes the system sizes routinely above 1000 atoms. It reveals… Read More ›

CP2K workshop in Ghent

Matt Watkins helped run a workshop introducing the CP2K atomistic simulation code to users in Ghent, Belgium. Ghent is quite old: the lecture room was somewhere in the middle of the building in the foreground. Evidence of the talk being given can be found here.

Physics Seminar: Dr. Francis Woodhouse

Date: Wednesday 27th of March, 13:30. Location: INB3305 (Isaac Newton Building). ‘Autonomous mechanisms inspired by biology’ by Francis Woodhouse, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, UK. Abstract: Unlike the air around us, biological systems are not in equilibrium: cells consume chemical energy to keep growing and moving, forming a clear arrow of time. The recent creation… Read More ›

Paper in J Chem Phys

Paper published in the Journal of Chemical Physics utilising Sergey Chulkov’s implementation time dependent density functional theory into the CP2K code: ‘Oxygen vacancies strongly aect physical and chemical properties of oxides and have been studied extensively both experimentally and theoretically. Experimental identication of such defects in bulk materials often relies on the interpretation of recorded… Read More ›

Physics Seminar: Dr. Adelchi Asta

Date: Wednesday 6th of March, 14:00. Location: INB3305 (Isaac Newton Building). ‘Listening to the electrical noise for nanofluidic sensing’ by Adelchi Jacques Asta, Laboratoire PHENIX, Department of Chemistry, Sorbonne University, Paris, France. Abstract: Moving from microfluidics, which is now a well-established field, to nanofluidics requires the development of computational tools. Using the Lattice Boltzmann Electrokinetics… Read More ›
