Launch of the Windows and Mac Versions of The Clean Energy Project - Phase 2
8 Nov 2010   

World Community Grid is pleased to announce the launch of the Windows and Mac versions of The Clean Energy Project - Phase 2 (CEP2).

This project is provided by the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA and hopes to find promising new materials for organic solar cells.

The CEP2 Linux version was launched on June 28, 2010 and we are now pleased to announce the release of the Windows and Mac versions of CEP2 for our members.

CEP2 is performing electronic structure calculations: To obtain more accurate optical, electronic and other physical properties of the candidate solar materials, quantum mechanics calculations are being performed for each of the candidates. These calculations will be performed with the Q-Chem quantum chemistry software, developed by Q-Chem, Inc. This work will result in a useful database of information about the properties of a large number of compounds. This project will also provide direct input to experimental groups to aid in their design of improved solar cells.
