Happy New Year! Merry Christmas and festive season!

The Quantemol team is wishing you prosperity and joy in the next year and cheerful festive season surrounded by your family and friends! Quantemol had a successful year where we had a chance to see many of you at various industry events. We held two workshops which gave us a lot of ideas on how to develop our products further and serve your interests better! This year updates:

1) QVT now has object-oriented meshing functionality, celebrated by our customers. To learn more about it see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=382Rz4NkfK0

2) QDB now offers data also in a format compatible with popular plasma modelling software: HPEM, CHEMKIN, COMSOL, CFD-ACE+, VizGlow, this list is growing. Another addition to the functionality is our Dynamic Chemistry application, where now you can assemble new chemistry sets within a matter of minutes. Check it out now (you have to be logged in to get access to this link): https://www.quantemoldb.com/chemistries/dynamic-chemistry/

3) We are working on the next generation to Quantemol-N software, Quantemol-Electron Collisions (QEC), which is based on modern R-Matrix and Molpro codes. It will provide you with a powerful tool automatically generating most of the input file set up and more precise calculations as a result. Future versions of QEC are featuring dissociative recombination estimation, effective core potential calculations and vibrational excitations for ions and neutrals. Planned Beta-release time is April 2019

4)Further good development news is that we are working on a method to calculate heavy particle collisions for neutrals (A+B - > C+D). We will provide a software interface that you can use for calculations. In the meantime, get in touch with us if you need some heavy particle collision calculations to be done by our experts: sales@quantemol.com

Look forward to working with you next year!! The Quantemol team wishes you prosperity and joy in the next year and a cheerful festive season surrounded by your family and friends!

Workshop on Designing and Reducing Complex Chemistry

Quantemol workshop on Designing and Reducing Complex Chemistry for plasma chemistry took place in Tokyo on 6 September. It was devoted to showing how one can build their plasma chemistry and optimise it for the required pressure and power conditions. Quantemol is promoting a mindful approach to the process of plasma chemistry-design for your simulations and a better understanding of the cross sections data. Attendees received a complimentary access to the chemistry sets on QDB used as demo materials during the workshop (CF4/O2/H2/N2) and two months of follow up support should they try to run those sets in their plasma model to practice.

Quantemol team thanks Athenasys and Prof. Hoshino from Sophia University for helping with the workshop organisation and their talk contributions!

Quantemol is organising Workshop in September!

Quantemol is excited to announce the workshop “Electron Scattering Cross Sections for Plasma Physics and Chemistry with Quantemol-N”. The workshop will take place in London, at University Colege London on 14 September 2018. We hope you will join us and embrace the opportunity to exchange ideas, learn, and improve our collaboration. The registration is FREE, but the number of places is limited!

The workshop is divided in two parts: a morning session of presentations related to electron-molecule scattering data and afternoon hands-on session using the Q-N software. For more information please go to the workshop website: http://www.quantemol.com/workshops-2018/london-2018/

We are looking forward to welcoming you in London!

How to design a plasma chemistry set- ground up

Our latest tutorial is on how to create a chemistry set from the ground up. This two part video will outline a step by step process on how to compile your chemistry sets, helping to simplify the process, and advising on which reactions to begin with. To access a full PDF version of the tutorial script, please use this link: http://www.quantemol.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Chemistry-design.pdf

The data in this video was validated using QVT and reactions were collected using QDB. If you would like to find out more about either of these tools, or to arrange web demos please contact us on info@quantemol.com.
