Finite Temperature Structure Prediction

Stanimir Bonev | 22-FS-014

Executive Summary

We will explore the feasibility of developing a method for predicting the crystal structure of solids at finite temperature and high pressure from first principles. If successful, it will provide a new capability for predictive simulations in the high-energy-density regime, which will have an immediate impact on the design and interpretation of high-pressure experiments.
