Virtual school on electronic excitations in solids and nanostructures using the Yambo code

Training materials

Lectures videos and hands-on tutorials



The Yambo Team is pleased to announce the:


Virtual school on "Electronic excitations in solids and nanostructures using the Yambo code"

The MaX/CECAM virtual school will last four days and will be held on April 8, 9 (week 1) and April 15, 16 (week 2) 2021 using the online platform Zoom.  

The school aims to introduce participants to post-DFT simulations, in particular to many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) approaches and will provide both theoretical overviews and practical training on the calculation of electronic and optical properties of solids and nanostructures.

Participants will attend theoretical lessons on Many-Body Perturbation Theory - organised in short modules - that will introduce them to the concepts based on the linear response, GW and Bethe-Salpeter calculations. A strong focus will be given on the connection with experimental observables (from photoemission to absorption and photoluminescence).  

Dedicated online hands-on sessions will be held for each topic, to gain experience and directly learn the use of the Yambo code. Students will further learn how to run post-processing tools for the analysis of the results.

Two online poster sessions will take place and applicants are encouraged to prepare a poster about their research. Details on the poster presentation will be provided upon registration.

Participants are required to have a background in DFT methods, including experience in running first-principles simulations.

The number of participants for the hands-on sessions will be limited.
