The European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) is a distributed knowledge network that gives researchers access to state-of-the-art computer simulations for electronic excited states in matter. Focusing on the fundamental knowledge of matter at the quantum-mechanical level, ETSF seeks to transfer this understanding to the future design of technologies in multiple areas.
