Event description

Description

On 18th January the Institute of Physics and Oxford Unviersity will be hosting Simone Sturniolo from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) who will be talking about his work in Quantum Chemistry.

The amazing variety of all matter, natural or artificial, is born out of the fundamental bricks that are few dozen elements. Crystallography is the experimental study of those solid materials in which atoms arrange themselves in ordered patterns, and of how all the properties we can see and touch can emerge from those simple patterns, discovered by prodding and probing them with tools like X-rays, neutron beams and magnetic fields. Today, however, another tool helps us look into the many ways atoms form macroscopic matter: computers. In this talk, you will have a chance to learn about some of the ways in which computer simulations can allow us to model matter from the fundamental laws of physics, help us understand experiments, make predictions, and even discover new materials from scratch.
