Charge distribution described by the density of charge distribution is a basic physical concept. The density of charge distribution is measured by charge density, the amount of electric charge per unit volume of space, in one, two, or three dimensions. More specifically, it can be divided into volume charge density (ρ), surface charge density (σ), linear charge density (λ). Charge distribution can be analyzed quantitatively by evaluating the following parameters: (1) probability of finding a carrier in the core, the shell, and surrounding; (2) the expectation value of the radial coordinate to each individual carrier; and (3) the expectation value of the distance between an electron and a hole.

Application of Charge Distribution
- The local charge distribution of a molecule determines the physical and chemical properties of molecules, such as ionization constant, reaction rate and pharmacophore.
- The charge distribution in a system can help chemistry researchers to investigate the properties of molecules, predict reaction sites, etc.
- The atomic charge is also significant for computational chemists, such as calculating molecular descriptors to establish virtual screening models, investigating electrostatic interactions in molecular dynamics simulations, and so on.
- First- and last-passage algorithms
First-passage and last-passage algorithms are two diffusion Monte Carlo methods, and we have developed two methods to obtain charge density on a conducting surface. At Alfa Chemistry, we apply them to compute charge distribution prediction on a conducting object and measure an overall charge distribution.
- First-principles calculation
First-principles calculations are widely used to account for the local electrification of the electrode surface, which often employs fixed ions as counter-charges. We learn the surface electric fields by controlling the counter-charge surface density utilizing first-principles calculation. Our teams can also use first-principles calculations to predict and investigate the physical properties of electrodes, such as mimicking the electrolyte charge density.
- Last-passage Monte Carlo algorithms
We have developed and tested the last-passage diffusion algorithm, a charge-based Monte Carlo algorithm, for the mutual capacitance of a system of interest. We apply the last-passage Monte Carlo algorithms for the charge density on an L-shaped conducting surface. Moreover, our experts can compute charge densities on an L-shaped conductor in 3D space.
