Developing a catalyst to replace platinum is the biggest obstacle to popularizing fuel cells. qCat is an unique web software that provides comprehensive simulation tools for structural modeling, activity prediction, and thermal and chemical stability of catalytic electrodes in fuel cells. Users will be able to test catalytic properties of bulk or nanoparticles using qCat.
Colloidal quantum dots have unique properties in controlling wave length of emitted light from them. However, well controllable QDs, so far, require toxic elements such as Cd or rare-earth elements. qBaandi is capable of predicting efficiency and emitting spectrum of quantum dots, as well as electronic structures, interfacial atomic structures of core/shell and stability.
