西北太平洋国家实验室李隽博士(现任清华大学教授)及其合作者,使用ADF的相对论密度泛函研究了锕系-惰性气体络合物 CUO(Ng)x (Science, 2002, 295, 2242-2245) ,以及超稳定的Au20 金字塔形分子(Science, 2003, 299, 864-867).



李隽博士说,”The unique relativistic quantum chemistry features of the ADF program greatly facilitate our research, the problems that we are investigating are highly challenging because of the complexity of the heavy-element systems and the size of the molecules. We benefited a great deal from ADF because of its superb efficiency, robust parallel scalability, and high accuracy. Without ADF and the high performance computing resources we have in our laboratory, it would be difficult for us to fulfill what we have accomplished. We have been very pleased with many of the state-of-the-art features available in ADF for tackling transition-metal and heavy-element systems“.
