We apply for a continued and expanded ongoing storage allocation to promote successful theoretical research around the Thin Film Physics environment at Linköping University with more than 20 theoretical researchers pursuing computation. We have consistently over a number of years proven that we use allocated resources in an efficient and productive manner resulting in a large number of scientific publications and recognition in the form of prestigeous grants from VR, VINNOVA, SSF, EU, Swedish Energy Agency, Linköping University, Swedish Government’s SFO, KAW foundation, and more. Our Hallmark is to use state-of-the-art theory and supercomputer resources and data storage, hand in hand with experimental synthesis and characterization, to resolve scientific problems, discover novel materials, and enable novel advanced nanostructured material’s applications, ranging over such broad areas as energy storage, neutron detector materials, structural materials, hard protective coatings, piezo- and thermoelectric applications, and magnetic storage media and sensors.
