Approaches to the local structure of water: Work in progress
  Molecular Physics seminar

Monday 13 April 2015
from 10:00 to 11:00
at FB51
Speaker : Daniel Schlesinger (Kemisk Fysik)
Abstract : In this seminar I'll give a short overview over three ongoing projects. First, I'll talk about the simulation of a teraherz (THz) pump/ x-ray diffraction (XRD) probe scenario. THz radiation is known to excite collective motions in liquid water. Motivated by an upcoming corresponding experiment, we try to describe the process qualitatively using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The second project deals with the analysis of recent experimental data for the radial distribution function (RDF) for water. The high quality data show intermediate range correlations that could potentially give new insights into water's structure. Last, I'll talk about the analysis of local structures in simulations of water in terms of hydrogen-bonded rings. I'll introduce the ring analysis and show first results obtained using this analysis.
