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.
Is High-Density Amorphous Ice Simply a ‘Derailed’ State along the Ice I to Ice IV Pathway? In this paper, just accepted by The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, we try to answer that question by investigating a colection of high-pressure phase transitions – of ice, and ammonium fluoride as well, digging deep into the […]
Yasmine’s paper studying the interaction between water/hydrogen and carbon nanotube has been published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. Congratulations to her! In this amazing work, they benchmarked of a variety of DFT functional with QMC. They found surprisingly that all the vdW-DF functional strongly over bind when water/H2 is inside the carbon nanotube! Detail […]
Gerit receives the Young Investigator Award of the Sanibel Symposium, where he gave a plenary talk on Density Functional Theory including van der Waals forces. The international conference is organized yearly by the University of Florida’s Quantum Theory Project and is well known as the “Theory Meeting for Theoreticians”. Congratulations to him!
Wei and Philipp won prizes at the Thomas Young Centre Postgraduate Student Day. Wei’s presentation “The Quantum Nature of DNA Base Pairs” got the runner-up for best talk and Philipp was awarded the best poster prize for his submission “From Gold to Dust: A Computational Journey”. Congratulations to them!
Congratulations to Patrick who was recently awarded the Salter’s Graduate prize for Chemistry. More info: http://www.saltersinstitute.co.uk/awards/graduate-awards/
