APS March Meeting 2017

This past month, five representatives from the Schleife Group escaped the bitter cold of the north and braved the bayou in pursuit of knowledge and alligator meat. Here they describe their adventures at the 2017 APS March Meeting, a week-long physics conference in New Orleans:

Cheng-Wei attends Computational Chemistry and Materials Science summer institute at Lawrence Livermore National Lab

From June 6th to August 12th 2016, Cheng-Wei attended the CCMS summer institute at Lawrence Livermore National Lab and worked with Dr. Alfredo Correa on developing "Accelerated Electron Dynamics". The major goal of this method is to include the essential excited-state effect into Born-Oppenheimer Molecular Dynamics while still maintaining its preferred time scale over Ehrenfest Dynamics. The preliminary data are promising!
