Speaker: Juan Carlos Suarez Bermejo

Free admission


Today, there are diverse procedures that enable us to estimate the properties of molecules and solids through computers without need to prepare them in the lab. The new models greatly simplify the solutions of the quantum mechanical equations and the obtained results are very valuable to explore the microscopy properties of diverse types of new materials, what opens doors to new possibilities. This model were reinforced by reformulating the traditional equations of quantum mechanics (Schrödinger) into a new Density functional theory (DFT) which has successfully described the behavior of the materials at scales previously inaccessible.

The DFT methods have become an essential tool in Materials Science and estimations are increasingly common when it comes to study subjects of materials research.
