The work of the Complex Modeling team, Pavol Juhas, Kevin Knox, Mike McKerns and Xiaohao Yang, was recently highlighted on the BNL website. The full article can be accessed here.
Understanding atomic structure at the nanoscale is a massive challenge, but one at the heart of solutions to modern technological problems in energy, health and the environment. Complex modeling is an attempt to obtain more robust structure models for nanomaterials from the large amounts of data coming available at modern x-ray, neutron and electron sources such as the National Synchrotron Light Source-II (NSLS-II) at BNL. The work, presented by Prof. Billinge at the 2014 Supercomputing Conference in New Orleans in November 2014, is described in the BNL news article.
