Our group, Peter Grünberg Institut in Forschungszentrum Jülich, is organizing a DFT hands-on workshop. We will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of using the FLEUR code developed by our group. Unfortunately, the registration is already closed, but all the lecture videos will be available on YouTube. I myself also plan to watch all the videos during the workshop week to learn and remind basic knowledge.
In this workshop, I am going to be a tutor on the Wannier function. The Wannier function is very useful for calculating electron transport properties in general. It’s because it often requires dense sampling of k-points or the system size is quite big for directly dealing with standard DFT methods. I am using this method for calculating various spintronic and orbitronic effects, which are my main research interests.
If you’re interested in this technique, you can watch my video. I hope this is going to be helpful. Enjoy!
