Optical and Thermodynamic Properties of Gold Metal Nanoparticles - Effect of Chemical Functionalization
27 May 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Baudilio Tejerina, George C. Schatz, Marcelo Carignano
This laboratory is intended to introduce the student to the use of semiempirical electronic structure methods. In particular, the semiempirical methods will be applied to the study of metallic clusters and the interaction of the clusters with discrete molecular systems such as pyridine.
Carbon Nanotube Fracture
27 May 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Christine M Aikens, George C. Schatz, Marcelo Carignano
Due to their mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) hold promise as nanoreinforcements in a variety of composites. As a result, numerous theoretical and experimental studies have been performed in order to understand the behavior of CNTs under axial tension. Whereas quantum mechanical...

Simulating Field Theory in the Light-Front Formulation
06 Jan 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Peter J. Love
I will talk about quantum simulation algorithms based on the light-front formulation of quantum field theory. They will range from ab initio simulations with nearly optimal resource scalings to VQE-inspired methods available for existing devices.
Quantum Information and Computation for Quantum Chemistry
13 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Sabre Kais
Recently, Purdue University received $1.5 million in National Science Foundation (NSF) funding to establish a research center to study quantum information science. The Center for Quantum Information and Computation for Chemistry will investigate information techniques used to gain novel...
Spin-Helical Particles: an Enabling Platform for Quantum Matter and Quantum Technologies
05 Jun 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Yong P. Chen
Spin is one of the most fundamental quantum properties of particles. In this talk I will describe our experimental studies of “spin-helical” particles (analogous to neutrinos with spin locked to the momentum, but for electrons and atoms) as a powerful platform to realize novel...

Forces That Govern Life: On the Way to Understanding Intermolecular Interactions
19 Jul 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Lyudmila V. Slipchenko
This talk will overview our recent work on the Effective Fragment Potential (EFP) method. EFP is a model potential designed for describing non-covalent interactions. The absence of fitted parameters and a natural partitioning of the interaction energy into Coulomb, polarization, dispersion, and...
