Dr Ian Bush talks on ‘CRYSTAL in parallel’ at Imperial College

The "MSSC2016 - Ab initio Modelling in Solid State Chemistry" summer school took place at Imperial College, London, from 19-23 September. The School was aimed at PhD students, Post-Docs and researchers with interests in solid state chemistry, physics, materials science, surface science and catalysis.

The school provides an overview of the possibilities offered by ab initio quantum mechanical techniques adopted in CRYSTAL when applied to the characterization of crystalline materials. It is organised by the Department of Chemistry and the Thomas Young Centre at Imperial College London and the Computational Materials Science Group of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), in collaboration with the Theoretical Chemistry Group of the University of Torino.

 

Dr Bush’s talk on Wednesday 21 September aimed to help students get the best out of CRYSTAL on parallel computers.

Read a Q&A with Dr Bush about his work utilising HPC in material science with CRYSTAL, the CRYSCOR program and DL_POLY.
