Theoretical study of the electronic and optical properties of systems taken out-of-equilibrium by means of ultra-intense and ultra-short laser pulses.

27 October 2021 Job Vacancies
Theoretical study of the electronic and optical properties of systems taken out-of-equilibrium by means of ultra-intense and ultra-short laser pulses.

The objective of this project is to provide a complete, consistent and accurate theoretical analysis  of the various phenomena that occur as a result of the optical excitation of paradigmatic nanostructures, solids and molecular aggregates via ultra-fast and intense  laser pulses.
To this end we will develop theoretical and innovative numerical approaches based on the accuracy of ab-initio techniques for the study of the dynamics of systems brought out of equilibrium by strong and short laser pulses.
These theoretical and numerical tools will be used to address complex nanostructures up to hundreds of atoms.
We will develop approximations and techniques for the solution of the equations that govern the dynamics out of equilibrium in the framework of the theory of non-equilibrium Green's functions.
The numerical implementations will be carried out in open-source code Yambo.

The FLASHit research span different areas of modern theoretical and computational physics:
the constant development and maintenance of the Yambo project. Yambo is a code to perform several ground and excited state  (equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium) calculations.  For more information we refer to the very recent paper about Yambo and to the Yambo web-page.
Yambo is an efficient and portable code that supports the latest supercomputing architectures and benefits of a long-standing collaboration with parallel computing centers.  The yambo suite thus provides all the ingredients for an advanced and computationally powerful approach to theoretical and computational material science.
the development of new theories and algorithms using  equilibrium and non-equilibrium Many Body theories (Many Body Perturbation Theory, Non-Equilibrium Green’s function Theory, Static and Time dependent Density Functional Theory).
the application of well established and new theories to simulate complex materials and interact with leading experimental groups in Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Greece.
