Quantum nuclear effects are important but generally poorly understood. For this reason, we are working to understand them by developing and applying state-of-the art path integral techniques. The types of systems we are looking at include processes at surfaces(chemical reactions and adsorption) and on the fundamental nature of the hydrogen bond. You can read more about quantum nuclear effects in our outreach page.
