    Schrödinger extends Materials Science capabilities through integration with QE

    Schrödinger Inc. and the Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation (QEF) are pleased to announce the integration of the Quantum ESPRESSO software into Schrödinger’s Materials Science Suite to enable expanded use offirst-principles simulation in industrial and academic research laboratories. The December 2016 release of the Schrödinger Materials Science Suite includes for the first time interfaces to Quantum ESPRESSO for simulation set-up and property analysis, making simulation of crystalline materials and surfaces accessible to both experts and non-experts alike. This new development is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Schrödinger and the QEF.
