About the ICE Group
Our research involves computer simulations of catalytic and environmental interfaces, aiming at reaching fundamental new understanding of elementary processes at such interfaces. Water is a major focus of our work. We are part of the London Centre for Nanotechnology, Department of Physics & Astronomy at UCL, and the Thomas Young Centre, and we often work closely with other theoretical and experimental groups throughout Europe and beyond.
Thanks to everyone for supporting our charity Half-Ironman in aid of WaterAid. Amazingly we won the relay in a time of 5 hours and 41 minutes. Not bad for a bunch of scientists! For anyone who didn’t get a chance to sponsor us before the race, it’s still not too late. See our JustGiving page […]
Philipp’s and Martin’s paper was published in Physical Review B! In this article they computed the ice nucleation ability of numerous model hydroxylated substrates with diverse OH group arrangements. For the substrates considered, they find that neither the symmetry of the OH patterns nor the similarity between a substrate and ice correlate well with the […]
The ICE group is participating in the Hever Castle Triathlon 2017 in September for fund-raising for the charity organization WaterAid. Angelos will be the runner, Phil the swimmer and Gabriele the biker. Wish the ICE group good luck! Please donate here, Thank you!
Wei’s paper on hydrogen diffusion on metal surfaces have been accepted in PRL! In this work, hydrogen diffusion on a variety of metal surfaces has been studied with DFT. We found many of these processes can be categorized as having barriers with conventional “parabolic-tops” or unconventional “broad-tops”. On the broad-top barriers, a temperature regime at […]
