Ass. Professor Kristian Sommer Thygesen was one of 33 talented young scientists to recieve a grant from the Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation. The grant is given as part of the Sapere Aude programme.
Post.doc. Troels Markussen from CAMD/CINF at DTU Physics was one of the skilled scientists, whom Det Frie Forskningsråd │ Teknologi og Produktion recently decided to support. Troels' project is called "Molecular junctions for thermoelectric applications". The amount granted is DKK 1.893.572.
We welcome Samira Siahrostami to CAMD.
We welcome Juan María García Lastra to CAMD.
The CAMD Summer School took place in the days of August 14-20, 2010. The overall subject on the school was "Electronic Structure Theory and Materials Design". For a resumé of the event please take a look here.
The winner of this year’s Gerhard Ertl Lecture Award is Prof. Jens Nørskov for his ground-breaking theoretical work in the field of catalysis. Nørskov and co-workers use computational methods to screen for new catalysts that could provide an increase in catalysis activity and selectivity.
We welcome Anthony Goodrow and Andrew Peterson to CAMD
We welcome Jun Yan to CAMD
The atomic simulation environment (ASE) is the software, that we use for doing our atomistic simulations here at CAMd. ASE is an open source project, with contributions from many developers around the world.

The US Department of Energy has granted DKK 100 million to a new research centre in which researchers from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will be participating. The Danish researchers will be contributing to the development of new renewable energy technologies in collaboration with Stanford University in California.
May 6th saw another NanoDay with approx. 300 researchers and PhD students in attendance.
May we present Jakob Blomquist.
The DKK 120 million that DTU recently received from the Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation will go towards establishing a new research initiative, CASE (Catalysis for Sustainable Energy), which will solidify Denmark’s leading role within the development of sustainable energy solutions. As per March 1st, 2009 Søren Dahl joins the new center as Deputy Director with responsibility for the overall coordination of the four project areas.
Professor Jens Kehlet Nørskov receives the award in recognition of his groundbreaking research in surface reactivity and heterogeneous catalysis.
The Danish Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation, Helge Sander has just given DKK 120 million to researchers at the Technical University of Denmark. The money will go towards finding new ways of harnessing the power of the sun and the wind. Headed by Professor Jens Kehlet Nørskov the new research center will solidify Denmark’s leading role within the development of sustainable energy solutions.
May we present Hai-Yan, Soumendu, Andreas and Lars.
May we present the following new colleagues: Jianmin Lu, Wei Guo and Jingzhe Chen.
Creating the fuels of tomorrow: Danish scientists connect with the Helios project.
