Computational Infrastructure

The Computational Infrastructure of the Computational Modeling of Nanostructured materials Laboratory includes:

1. A  Dell PowerEdge R720 rack server and 9 nodes with total 144 cores and 288 threads (Intel Xeon E5-2650 HT) and 1 TByte of main memory supporting also parallel computing.

2. A cluster of work stations and high-performance PCs with total number of 26 CPUs and 880GB, dedicated to the research activities of the group.

Both systems are configured with the Centos Linux operating system. 


  • In-house developed software
  • The  Vienna Ab Initio Simulation Package (VASP), a plane wave electronic structure code. 

Access in Large scale National computational Infrastructure  For our computational needs we are using the National high performance computing system ARIS of the Greek Research and Technology Network (GRNET). We secure computational time by submitting proposals regularly (usually twice a year).
