Welcome to Our Website

Welcome to the new home page of the Kieffer Group.

We use this server for software development. The Kieffer group and many of our collaborators are working on tools to improve data interoperability in molecular dynamics, as well as introducing new potentials and parameters to existing open-source platforms such as LAMMPS.

This server is named after Lake Nyos, a crater lake in Cameroon (shown in the banner image). It is one of three exploding lakes in the world and most recently erupted in 1986. Three degassing tubes are currently installed in the lake prevent another explosion.
