The CEA participates within MAX with INAC institute, especially with the L Sim laboratory and the Research and Technology Computing Center (CCRT). 


Research expertise

The CEA, in particular the L Sim lab, has the goal of simulating and predicting the structure and the properties of nanomaterials, developing original and HPC codes as BigDFT, TB Sim, and Fiesta


Tasks in MAX

The L Sim team is the main maintainer of the BigDFT code. The supercomputer centre of CEA (CCRT) contributes to the container technology and provides some tools for the processing of experimental data.
