Lorena A. Barba group


Natalia Clementi defended her PhD thesis

Congratulations to Natalia Clementi, who successfully defended her thesis on February 16, 2021. Bravo! Natalia is from Argentina, with a degree in physics from Universidad Nacional de Córdoba. She was recruited by Prof. Barba during the VI Latin American Symposium on High-Performance Computing (HPC-Latam) in July 2013, and arrived in Washington to join the Barbagroup... Continue »

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 »

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...
