Computer Code Solves a Quantum Mechanical Problem

By | Innovation and infrastructure, Just Added, Technology and interconnectivity, Uncategorised | No Comments
Focusing on the strange and surprising quantum world, a unique computer code that can model systems comprising thousands of atoms is driving fresh discoveries in areas as diverse as new materials, clean energy, nanotechnology and pharmaceuticals. Called ONETEP (Order-N Electronic Total Energy Package), the code plugs the critical gap between what can be achieved by state-of-the-art experiments and by conventional quantum-level computer modelling & simulation of just a few hundred atoms at a time. This is a classic story of how multi-institution, multidisciplinary co-operation – in this case including SES members Cambridge and Southampton Universities and Imperial College London – can...
