Storage for theoretical physics environment at LiU
Title: Storage for theoretical physics environment at LiU
SNIC Project: SNIC 2019/35-64
Project Type: SNIC Medium Storage
Principal Investigator: Rickard Armiento <>
Affiliation: Linköpings universitet
Duration: 2020-01-01 – 2020-07-01
Classification: 10304


We apply for a continued and expanded ongoing storage allocation for the environment of the Theoretical Physics Division at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM), Linköping University with all our Ph.D. students, senior members, and some collaborators, which makes around 50 researchers pursuing computation in connection to various SNIC grants connected to this division. We have consistently over many years produced high-quality scientific publications citing SNIC resources, including Nature Materials, Nature Communications, and Physical Review Letters. Our grants pertain to a wide range of research in materials science, materials design, functional materials, etc. We employ a wide range of methods, e.g., electronic structure simulations, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulations, phonon calculations, etc. The Theoretical Physics division leader, Igor Abrikosov, is well recognized in Sweden and internationally. He has more than 300 papers with more than 10000 citations and h-index 54. In 2007, he was awarded Göran Gustafsson Prize in Physics, perhaps the most prestigious national scientific prize in Sweden. In 2016 Igor Abrikosov was elected as a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA, class Physics). This request is for storage that continues our previous "NSC storage project" SNIC 2014/5-59 of NSC center storage under "/proj/theophys". The allocation will serve at least SNIC 2019/1-11, SNIC 2019/2-9 and LiU-2019-26. For more scientific details of what projects the storage will be used for, please refer to those grants. Since two of these projects are ongoing, and the third starts 2020-01-01, we have entered the submission date of this application as the requested starting date, which is intended to mean: as soon as possible.
