Two physics graduates have joined the group! Felix Heijnen joins us from KU Leuven in Belgium to pursue an Erasmus mundus MSc degree, and Oskar Leinonen joins us from Chalmers Department of Physics to pursue his MSc thesis. Both Felix and Oskar will be working on quantum chemical calculations on quantum computers. Welcome!
Please see details and apply here.
Our hard work extending the validity of the periodic table to high pressure has earned a press release from Chalmers!
We are happy to welcome Phalgun Lolur to the team. Dr. Lolur joins us from MIT and will be working as a postdoctoral researcher in the OpenSuperQ project. His work will center around the use of quantum computers to perform quantum chemistry calculations.
A recently published article in which 30 authors share their different views on use and future development of Energy Decomposition Analyses. I am highlighting the EQC scheme, unique in that it allows for partitioning of energies from both experiments and quantum mechanical calculations.
A comprehensive quantum chemical study of the effect of pressure on the atoms of the periodic table has been published in J. Am. Chem. Soc. This extension of atomic reference data assists in the working of chemical intuition at extreme pressure and can act as a guide to both experiments and computational efforts.
Antea Cooper has joined the group over the summer. Antea has received a scholarship from the Chalmers/Virginia Initiative for Cosmic Origins and will work on quantum chemical studies of purine synthesis. Welcome Antea!
