08/01/219 Another successful summer in the books…

Thanks to Jessica, Shaniya, and Will for a great summer of simulations and conversations! Summer in a nutshell:

  • Jessica continued our work on co-solvent preferences at electrochemical interfaces by simulating carbonate electrolytes at an air interface.
  • Will continued our work on force field development by studying the impact of charge scaling on salt association and accumulation at solid electrolyte interphases.
  • Shaniya developed a new set of simulations for calculating the free energy for lithium ion transfer at lithium fluoride and lithium carbonate surfaces, both materials that are present in rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
