Martini Solar Cells
- Last Updated: Friday, 17 February 2017 08:07
Martini is also suited for non-biological applications. Check out our latest work on bulk heterojunction morphologies for organic solar cells. Mixtures of poly(3-hexyl-thiophene) (P3HT) and phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM), solvated in chlorobenzene, slowly dried and cooked to perfection !

Polarizable water model
- Last Updated: Monday, 06 February 2017 12:16
A refined polarizable water model is now available, developed by the group of Jens Smiatek. The new model improves the behavior of Martini with long range electrostatic interactions. Available from the download section. See: J. Michalowsky, L.V. Schäfer, C. Holm, J. Smiatek. http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4974833 for details.

Cool stuff! Dry Martini coupled to stochastic rotational dynamics to account for solvent hydrodynamics:
