Russia's first open source project «KVAZAR», focused on computer simulation in the field of nanotechnology and biomedical research, is gaining momentum. Introduced in March 2015 at a presentation held at the conference hall of Educational-scientific institute of nanostructures and biosystems by its main developer - the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor, head of the Department of radio engineering and electrodynamics Olga E. Glukhova software program «KVAZAR» have already begun to take its audience of potential users Worldwide. Scientific groups of Chapman University (USA), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), Institute of High Performance Computing (Singapore), National Taiwan University (Taiwan) have already expressed interest in the use of «KVAZAR».
The high level of the developed product, relevant to international standards, has been recently noted in paper «Electronic states of zigzag graphene nanoribbons with edges reconstructed with topological defects», published in the latest issue of the journal Physica B: Condensed Matter (Volume 475, Pages 61-65, doi 10.1016 /j.physb.2015.06.025) of largest scientific publisher Elsevier. Due to the computing features of the program «KVAZAR» it has been proven the formation of chemical bonds between the edges of zigzag graphene nanoribbons with defects in the kind of divided heptagons. «KVAZAR» has taken a worthy among the modern tools of molecular modeling and proved its good competitive ability, along with well-known software products such as GAMESS and AVOGADRO, also used in the work «Electronic states of zigzag graphene nanoribbons with edges reconstructed with topological defects». The international team of publication authors, presented by researchers of the Institute of Experimental Physics, Slovak Academy of Sciences, the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague and the Bogolyubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics by Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, expressed his gratitude to Olga E. Glukhova and her research team for help in carrying out calculations using software complex «KVAZAR»:
"Our special thanks to O.E. Glukhova and her research group for performing calculations by using the program KVAZAR ".
