How repro-packs can save your future-self

The story of a bug-fix after the research paper was published. Back in December 2019 we published a paper along with its reproducibility packages. These repro-packs, as we call them, consist of all the files necessary to reproduce the results in our paper (data and plots) and we deposit them in Zenodo and Figshare archives... Continue »

Our challenge
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the university implemented emergency remote teaching starting on March 23, 2020. Students are now back home—some in different time zones—and expected to continue learning, with their teachers quickly adopting new technologies and... Continue »

Computational nanoplasmonics in the quasistatic limit for biosensing applications

Preprint: arXiv 1812.10722 Dec. 31, 2018. Submitted: Dec. 31, 2018; Jan. 20, 2019; Mar. 20, 2019. Accepted: Nov. 1. Published: Dec. 16, 2019. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.100.063305 Abstract This work uses the long-wavelength limit to compute LSPR response of biosensors, expanding the open-source PyGBe code to compute the extinction cross-section of metallic nanoparticles in the presence of any target...
