University of North Georgia (UNG) chemistry professor Dr. Aimée L. Tomlinson's research on color-changing materials continues to gain a wider audience.

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) published an article on her work with Georgia Tech graduate student Dylan T. Christensen and Georgia Tech faculty member Dr. John R. Reynolds.

The work, also outlined in a Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) article, has potential uses for black material that is highly desirable for military visors, full-color passive displays, energy-saving tinted windows, and dimmable glasses.

Tomlinson uses SDSC's "Comet" supercomputer "to analyze Reynolds' electrochromic materials with computational models that provide insights into what's happening at the sub-molecular level."

"While I was the only person doing the computational work for this particular project, I have worked with 39 undergraduate students and 25 of them have gone on to, or have plans to attend, graduate or medical school," Tomlinson told SDSC. "I have been fortunate enough to have been afforded more than 2 million core-hours to complete my work, which has led to this paper as well as 11 additional manuscripts where seven included undergraduate authors."
