Huge Computing Time Project Granted      >> more >>

The proposal "Materials and Interfaces for Organic and Hybrid Photovoltaics" has been selected for a 2018 Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) award by Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF). A total of 330 Mio CPUh have been awarded to a consortium of top-notch researchers from around the world, including the Hofmann group. The activities in Graz will focus on determining the structure and the properties of inorganic/organic interfaces using the recently developed SAMPLE algorithm always with the purpose of finding the ideal material combination for photovoltaic cells, which are a cruicial factor in the quest for renewable, clean energy sources.
