Two recent publications are now available online

Josh Goings and Feizhi Ding published a paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics titled “Ab Initio Non-Relativistic Spin Dynamics“. The Generalized Hartree-Fock density was coupled to a magnetic field and propagated in real time. This was a non-relativist two-component spinor method, called TDN2C. This method allows for the resolution of non-collinear electron spins precessing […]

The group welcomes Sajan Silwal

We are pleased to welcome a new graduate student, Sajan Silwal to the group. Sajan originally hails from Nepal and obtained his undergraduate degree at Kalamazoo College in Michigan. There he did some experimental work looking on photodissociation, but became interested in programming and decided to switch to theory for graduate school. Welcome Sajan!

Congratulations to Xiaosong on his 100th publication!

Xiaosong’s 100th publication has just been accepted to The Journal of Chemical Physics. Starting in 1999, Xiaosong has published papers focused on a variety of topics such as wave function and geometry optimization, electronic and nuclear dynamics, and various types of spectroscopies. This most recent paper is especially exciting because it focuses on spin dynamics, […]
