Zannoni Liquid Crystal Group Facilities

Computer Modelling and Simulations

Much of the activity of the group involves large scale computer simulations and heavy computational work and our present group resources include:

3 racks with

All the machines are of course networked and connected to the Italian Supercomputer Centre, CINECA, based in Casalecchio, Bologna. The group makes extensive use of their facilities: in particular their supercomputer resources and clusters via the ISCRA allocation scheme.

We have experience and currently use parallel computing techniques for workstation clusters, GPU and GRID computing.


The present experimental activity is mainly in Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) and is based on our Bruker EMX ESR spectrometer.

We have also a long experience of Fluorescence Depolarization and equipment for fluorescence depolarization measurements: static (Perkin Elmer) and nanosecond time scale dynamics (originally with Edinburgh Instr. Single Photon Counting apparatus).
