Recent events, research visits and conference participations

2021

  • On 29 January, Mervi Mantsinen, ICREA Research professor and our Fusion group manager at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), has been selected for the European Physical Society Plasma Physics Division Board.
  •  
  • On 1 February, Oriol Fernandez and Olga Ortega joined our group.
  •  
  • On 1 April, our group was awarded a new HPC project under the EU-JA Broader Approach collaboration in the Computational Simulation Centre of International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC-CSC). The project is led by Julio Gutiérrez and will provide us 350K node-h (14,000,000 core-h) for the large scale simulation of tungsten by ab initio methods..
  •  
  • On 5 April, Julio Gutiérrez presented our recent progress on the FusionCAT project work on “Large-scale ab-initio study of tungsten metal from linear-scaling density functional theory methods” at the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) Division Computers in Chemistry (COMP) Symposium on Materials Science.
  •  
  • On 7 April, Dani Gallart covered plasma heating with a lecture entitled “Plasma heating with RF waves” as part of the Fusion Technology Course of the Nuclear Engineering Master organized by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain.
  •  
  • On 21 April, José Lorenzo gave a lecture on “Superconducting Magnets for Fusion” as part of the Fusion Technology Course of the Nuclear Engineering Master organized by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain.
  •  
  • On 5 May, Julio Gutiérrez gave his lecture on “Computational Modelling of Fusion Materials at the Atomic Scale” as part of the Fusion Technology Course of the Nuclear Engineering Master organized by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain.
  •  
  • On 26 May, Xavier Sáez gave a lecture entitled “Simulation codes in Fusion Technology” as part of the Fusion Technology Course of the Nuclear Engineering Master organized by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain.
  •  
  • From 31 May to 4 June, Julio Gutiérrez attended the 2021 Spring Meeting of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) and presented our FusionCAT work on the “Ab initio study of defects in tungsten from linear-scaling density functional theory methods”.
  •  
  • From 1 July to 31 August, Paolo Settembri from the University of L’Aquila (Italy) and Eoin Kearney from University of Edinburgh (UK) joined the Fusion Group through the PRACE Summer of HPC programme. They worked on molecular dynamics simulations of irradiation cascades and thermal conductivity in defective tungsten under the supervision of Julio Gutiérrez.
  •  
  • From 25 to 29 October, Julio Gutiérrez attended the 20th edition of the International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials (ICFRM-20) and presented our recent FusionCAT project research on the “Large-Scale modelling of defects in tungsten by linear-scaling density functional theory calculations”.
  •  
  • On 1 November, Mary Kate Chessey joined our group.
