We are pleased to send you the 11th issue of the Industrial Newsletter of NCCR MARVEL, the Swiss Center on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
In this edition, read about a study that could improve the design of industrial-scale processing techniques for lead perovskites, as well as about a new type of so-called "bite" defects, identified as the most common source of disorder in on-surface synthesized graphene nanoribbons. Read too about a highly accurate machine-learning model that allows for a full quantum statistical and dynamical description of the solvated electron, and about how both superconductivity and high critical temperature are found in the 2D semimetal W2N3.
You can also learn more about the successful partnership between MARVEL and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre CSCS.
Note the review of electronic-structure methods which has been published in Nature Materials and outlines how powerful and widespread quantum simulations have become.
Finally do not hesitate to attend to the next MARVEL Distinguished Lecture, which will be given by Darío Gil, Senior Vice President and Director of IBM Research.
