What are preprints?

https://youtu.be/2zMgY8Dx9co What is a preprint? (Science communication Tool)   Preprint vs traditional paper submission.  When I was pursuing my bachelor's degree I went to a research center and the first thing I read there was "Science that is not shared is not science" then I had the opportunity to enter this fascinating world of thinkers, conquers or discoverers.    But, How to share science? There are two ways one is peer review paper manuscript where you are reporting to science…

How to read a scientific paper in just three steps

Reading on paper is an old school way to annotate and highlight the most interesting elements For a scientist, reading is a must responsibility in the modern world of information, this task allows us to update the state of the art of the current research. For example, the objective of my work is to reproduce and improve antimony sulfo-selenide thin-film solar cells. Therefore, the first thing I did before experimental research It was to read the updated literature. As I am in…

Water molecule using Burai 1.3 and Quantum Espresso

Course: Electronic properties of semiconductors by AB-INITIO Profesor: Dr. Raciel Jaimes López  (Postdoctoral at IER-UNAM) Simulation of water molecule formation using Burai 1.3 and Quantum Espresso Viewer by Jmol Last month I attended the course Electronic properties of semiconductor by AB-Initio at IER-UNAM, on the 1st day we had a quick view about the background of DFT (Density Functional Theory), plane waves and pseudopotentials. During the course, we learn about the open-code Quantum Espresso software which is used for electronic-structure…
