NOMAD 360° Video creation process showcased at SuperMUC Workshop


Rubén García-Hernández presented NOMAD 360° Video creation process at the bi-annual SuperMUC Status and Results Workshop, which showcases results that have been generated on the LRZ's SuperMUC system.

Two use cases were presented. In the first, excitons in lithium fluoride were visualized as a 6-D dataset. In semiconductors like lithium fluoride, electron-hole pairs are created when light hits the material. These electron-hole pairs are called excitons. Experimentally one cannot “see” excitons, but can be visualized using NOMAD VR tools. A 360 degrees movie is available here.

Visualization of adsorption of carbon dioxide on calcium oxide was also shown, demonstrating how carbon dioxide interacts with CaO, a mineral also called quicklime. Stable (and linear) carbon dioxide molecules are changed into a bent configuration ready for a chemical reaction. This is a general phenomenon of heterogeneous catalysis. A movie of this is available here.

Rubén's slides from his presentation 'Creation of 360° videos from volumetric datasets - Use cases: Excitons in lithium fluoride & adsorption of carbon dioxide on calcium oxide' are available here.
