About the ETSF
The European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility is a research network and e-infrastructure dedicated to providing support and services for ongoing research in academic, government and industrial laboratories. Comprised of 68 research teams across Europe and the United States, the ETSF carries out state-of-the-art research on theoretical and computational methods for studying electronic and optical properties of materials. All fields in need of knowledge about electronic excitations, transport and spectroscopy will benefit from the ETSF, such as condensed matter physics and chemistry, biology, materials and nano science. The ETSF gathers the experience and know-how of more than 200 researchers in Europe and the United States, facilitating innovation and rapid knowledge transfer. The ETSF is headquartered in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.
The ETSF has two sides. The research network (Nanoquanta) focuses on ETSF scientists' collaborative research, including the development of new theory and algorithms for describing spectroscopic processes. The ETSF User Infrastructure addresses the needs of the ETSF's external users, including the evaluation of user project proposals and the assignment of resources to carry out user projects.
