Project description

The aim of this project is the development of advanced computational models that enable affordable yet accurate quantum mechanical calculations to be performed in nanomaterials which constitute promising candidates for hydrogen production and storage. The insight provided by the computational optimization of the target nanostructures may be used in the design of more
efficient nanodevices for energy storage and conversion.
