CCP9 is the Collaborative Computational Project for the Study of the Electronic Structure of Condensed Matter
The field includes the study of metals, semiconductors, magnets, and superconductors from microscopic quantum mechanical calculations. The activities of CCP9 encompass such highly topical areas as magneto-electronics (GMR, CMR, spin-transistors), photonics, nano-technology, high-temperature superconductors, and novel wide band gap semiconductors (eg GaN, diamond films).
CCP9 provides a network which connects UK research groups in electronic structure, facilitates UK participation in the larger European ΨkNetwork, and is supporting a number of cutting edge computational codes.Information on the SLA core support, delivered by the Daresbury group
CCP9 Young Researchers EventThe 2015 CCP9 Young Researchers Event was held at the University of York on March 25-16. Programme. The event at which 65 young researcher took part was chaired by Yvette Hancock.
CCP9 networking grantThe renewal of the CCP9 networking and core support grant has been successful. The new grant will take over in September 2015. Thanks to all, who contributed to the proposal!
