Analyzing bonding interactions of molecules on surfaces: Paper & Tutorial

A recent review paper on periodic energy decomposition analysis (pEDA) by Lisa Pecher & Ralf Tonner was widely covered in the media (HLRS, CMFE, EurekAlert). The pEDA calculations enable deep insight in molecule-surface interactions, which will help to understand how to build patterned surfaces to rationally design the next generation of semiconductor materials.
