We Do Computational Materials Science
To Understand Fundamental Materials Properties
And To Design Entirely New Materials
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:
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!
June 13-15 2016, Josh Leveillee attended the 2016 Blue Waters Supercomputer Symposium in Sunriver, Oregon. The goal of the symposium is to bring together National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NSCA) staff, Blue Waters researchers, and National Science Foundation (NSF) representatives to discuss cutting edge computational work performed on the Blue Waters supercomputer.
The two week program provided training in computational methods and their integration in undergraduate curriculum.
