Professor Stefano Sanvito

Professor of Condensed Matter Theory (Physics)

Director of CRANN (CRANN)

At the beginning of year 2002 I moved from University of California Santa Barbara to the Trinity College Dublin, creating the "Computational Spintronics Group" within the Physics Department. The main research focus of the group is to study theoretically spin transport at the nanscale level. The group at present comprises two postdoctoral researchers, six PhD students and several undergraduate and summer students. We established the "Computational Spintronics Lab." with nine state of the art PC workstations. The purchase of a large LinuX-based cluster is at present under tender. We maintain several collaborations locally and internationally with frequent visits to Dublin from our collaborators. In year 2003/2004 we host an equivalent of about two months visit. In the two years 2002-2004 we have published over ten publications in peer reviewed journals, two book chapters, several conference proceedings, and we have submitted an Irish patent. Recently we received fundings from Science Foundation of Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the High Education Authority, for a total of about 1,5 Million Euro over the next five years. This ranks us as probably the largest and best funded single PI Computational Materials Science group in Ireland.
