►  Article to be published!
The Journal of Chemical Physics accepted an article regarding a research project that Jeremy Barnes (2015 REU Participant) started in Marco Caricato's Research Lab. The article is currently under press. The project concerns the development of electronic embedding schemes, based on fixed point charges, for the evaluation of electronic excitation energies & oscillator strengths with hybrid QM/QM methods. We are excited to see the article officially in print and applaud both Jeremy and his mentor Marco Caricato for a job well done.
