source: Siesta

A review of the present status, recent enhancements, and applicability of the Siesta program is presented in a new paper in The Journal of Chemical Physics with a contribution by R. Korytár.

Antiferromagnetic Spintronics

24 Jun 2020, 10:00

source: Physical Review Materials

Our ab initio calculations as well as collaboration with experiment have resulted in two recent publications on CuMnAs properties. In the first one, the finite temperature magnetism and resistivity of antiferromagnetic CuMnAs is described. The second one studies electrical transport properties of bulk tetragonal CuMnAs.


Our group also participates in COST Action Nanoscale Coherent Hybrid Devices for Superconducting Quantum Technologies (Nanocohybri), supported by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)
