Challenge Team Abstract
The formation of hard-to-grow crystal compounds has been an expensive and time-consuming process. However, a theory has been proposed that might revolutionize this process. The theory hypothesizes that the rotation of electrodes will harness the power of turbulence to improve the efficiency of crystal-growth processes. The concept of rotating electrodes has been overlooked by modern researchers, primarily because there are few scientists qualified in both fluid dynamics and electrochemistry. However, the Goddard Supercomputer Challenge team has proposed to tackle this fascinating, and possibly profitable, scientific quandry. Rotating electrodes are believed to dramatically decrease time-span required for crystal formation. The turbulence caused by the rotation of the electrode increases efficiency of the diffusion process by jumping the diffusion barrier. Thus, the rotating electrode offers immense opportunities for industry. Through the SNOW equation, Team 62 will prove the increased benefits of rotating electrodes in chemical solutions.
