About the ICE Group
Our research involves computer simulations of catalytic and environmental interfaces, aiming at reaching fundamental new understanding of elementary processes at such interfaces. Water is major focus of our work. We are part of the London Centre for Nanotechnology, Department of Chemistry at UCL, and the Thomas Young Centre, and we often work closely with other theoretical and experimental groups throughout Europe and beyond.

Large variation in ice surface vacancies
In a recent paper in Nature Materials, researchers at UCL (Matt Watkins, Angelos Michaelides and Ben Slater) in collaboration with researchers from University of Zurich, Peking University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have discovered unexpected properties of ice at the nanoscale that relate to Faraday 'regelation' experiments at the Royal Institution in the 1850's.
