Dr. Lindsey wins ACT-UP grant entitled “Enabling a Quantum Accurate Description of Chemistry and Carbon Condensation in Shocked Organic Materials”

ACT-UP supports academic research alliances with LLNL’s Weapons and Complex Integration (WCI) directorate, with a focus on WCI’s Weapon Physics and Design stockpile science, inertial confinement fusion and national security mission space. Drs. Lindsey and Sorin Bastea (LLNL) will work together to advance fundamental understanding of nanocarbon synthesis from shock compressed precursors, using the ChIMES Continue Reading »

Dr. Lindsey and collaborators win LLNL LDRD grant entitled “Predictive Atomistic Materials Simulations with Uncertainty Quantification”

This project will enable predictive large-scale atomistic materials simulations that approach quantum-level accuracy by developing an automated framework for discovering and generating optimal fitted potentials with rigorous error bounds that do not require experimental input. The outcome will be a broad capability for predicting the complex physical and chemical responses of materials under a wide Continue Reading »
