Highlights with ‘FDE’

FDE: hole decay in DNA, long-range charge separation

In two recent publications, frozen density embedding has been used to study hole decay in DNA and long-range charge-separation processes. Charges and spins can be constrained in different subsystems with the linear-scaling subsystem DFT approach,...

Recent advances in Frozen-Density Embedding: State-Selective Excitations, Charge Transfer, Spin Densities

ADF developer Johannes Neugebauer and his co-workers have showcased new methodologies within the Frozen-Density Embedding (FDE) framework. With FDE, much larger systems can be studied than with traditional DFT. Furthermore, as densities can be localized...
