QEC Release, get a free trial!

enter image description here

Quantemol releases the first version of Quantemol-EC software. Get QEC FREE trial, sign up here!

One of the future features in QEC is vibration excitation cross-section calculations. The method development is in full progress! The first step is the development of the approach to dissociative recombination cross-sections calculations. See our preliminary results below (produced by Aran O'Hare). enter image description here

If you are interested in calculations of vibrational excitation, get in touch at sales@quantemol.com, we may be able to help.

Offering consultancy on chemistry set reduction

The quantemol team is working on developing an algorithm which automates chemistry reduction including your process conditions specifics and prioritised species. We already have an in-house version and offering consultancy services on assembling chemistry sets and optimising it from hundreds to dozens of reactions. This will significantly reduce your calculation times for 2D and 3D models without losing the essence of the processes you are trying to model.

See our recent publication Reduced chemistries with the Quantemol database (QDB) available online from Plasma Science and Technology, Volume 21, Number 6 (2019).

Contact us on sales@quantemol.com to learn more.

The algorithm will be available as a cloud version on QDB soon. Sign up for our newsletter to stay connected (the email frequency is less than 1 in 2 months).

Quantemol and the Climate Change Emergency

enter image description here

Deteriorating climate conditions are resulting from the increase of CO2 and CH4 in the atmosphere, creating a greenhouse effect and heating up the planet.

Out of the past 22 years, 20 of them have been the warmest years on record according the World Meteorological Organisation. Weather changes are leading to the mass extinction of many species, and even humans might be on the list if we do not act quickly.

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the official adviser to UK government and devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales, published a 277-page advice document recommending 0 emissions of CO2 by 2050. Controversially, the extinction rebellion activists demanded governments to act precipitately to reduce emission to 0 by 2025.

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) asserted that we have only 12 years to make a difference and prevent the increase of the atmosphere by 2Co or more degrees in comparison to pre-industrial times.

Every business should evaluate its impact on the climate change challenge. Quantemol’s mission is to reduce experimental testing, and by designing virtually reduce waste.

Quantemol is further committing to supporting research to deploy plasmas to combat pollution and develop clean energy technologies. These include gas abatement, recycling and clean energy as follows

Gas abatement

  1. Carbon capture and CO2 conversion using plasma, with up to 90% efficiency
  2. Toxic waste abatement using plasma
  3. Air and water purification using plasma

Recycling

  1. Plasma arc recycling

Clean energy

  1. Plasma fusion - move to clean energy

  2. Plasma in the manufacturing of solar panels to provide clean energy

Ecological alternatives

  1. Plasma treated water to replace traditional pesticides in agriculture, aiming to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by 3 % and act as a fertiliser

The challenge is to develop new and better technologies. The Quantemol team is committed to progress research addressing climate change.

NEW feature is coming soon: Quantemol Plasma Chemistry Generator (QPCG)

Our team is working on making work with chemistry data easier that it has always been! Modelling plasma systems in complex gas environment usually means dealing with reaction schemes containing tens of species and up to a thousand of reactions. Incorporating such complex chemical schemes is usually impossible task for spatially resolved (2D and 3D) plasma models due to the high computational cost. Many fluid solvers will struggle with over 50 reactions even in 2D. The Quantemol Plasma Chemistry Generator (QPCG) is the tool we are working on at the moment and it will help to build up reaction kinetics schemes for plasma modelling applications and reduce to account for only selected species of interest. Read here is our recent publication discussing this topic: https://doi.org/10.1088/2058-6272/ab00a1
