We use continuum local density of states calculations based on the continuum Green’s function approach developed by A. Kreisel, P. Hirschfeld and collaborators [1, 2] to model quasi-particle interference (QPI) and understand the electronic structure of quantum materials. The image on the right shows the QPI calculated for Sr3Ru2O7. Our St Andrews calcQPI code is optimised for running on HPC clusters and uses GPU acceleration. The image on the right has been calculated on a GPU node using four Nvidia Tesla V-100s on Cirrus.
