What to expect at the IDTechEx show?

It is almost time for the IDTechEx show in Berlin! On the 10th and 11th of April, you can find Thomas Soini and Fedor Goumans at stand F14. They are looking forward to meeting you...

Solvation-Mediated Tuning of the Range-Separated Hybrid Functional

Since its first appearance in 2010, the optimal tuning of the range-separated hybrid functional has reshaped the landscape of computational chemistry, by placing routine DFT calculations on par with those of the prohibitively expensive many-body...

Photoinduced Charge Separation in Organic Photovoltaics: Effect of Dispersion

The effects of dispersion forces on the structure and charge separation (CS) in the P3HT/PCBM dimer were studied using state-of-the-art computational methods in ADF (DFT-D3, TDDFT–CAMYB3LYP). The authors demonstrate the importance to properly account for...

Tuning the range separation in LC-wPBE for organic electronics

Optimizing TADF emission Long-range corrected density functional theory can ameliorate some of the known problems of DFT dealing with charge transfer states (e.g. push-pull systems). These systems are of great interest for organic electronics, and...

Controlled doping of organic semiconductors

The process of electrical doping, or charge transfer in general terms, was used in the early stages of developing organic electronics when conducting polymers were first discovered. Since then it has been largely unexplored in stark contrast...

Two ADF publications in Nature Chemistry

On 15 August 2016, two papers were published in Nature Chemistry featuring ADF charge transfer calculations from Grozema & Renaud (TU Delft).

Dyes on TiO2: ReaxFF + TDDFT study

Reactive Molecular Dynamics simulations with ReaxFF have been used successfully in combination with Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory (TDDFT) calculations to disclose structural features, aggregation characteristics, dynamics and spectroscopic properties of an organic dye adsorbed on a...

Intersystem crossing through spin-orbit coupling in Os(II) complexes

The Os(fipz)(tfa)(CO)3 (tfa = trifluoroacetate, fipz=3-trifluoromethyl-5-(1-isoquinolinyl)-1,2-pyrazole) complex shows excitation-dependent emission quantum yield. The higher-energy excitation (< 340 nm) contributes more to phosphorescence than fluorescence, implying stronger intersystem crossing (ISC) for highly excited singlet states. Theoretical...
