About Our Developer Community
Since 1993, Q-Chem, Inc. has provided commercial, academic and government scientists worldwide with high-quality quantum chemistry software, allowing them to solve computational problems quickly and accurately. Our open-teamware approach allows research groups from all across the globe to contribute their code to Q-Chem. Recent additions from our developers include the Nuclear-Electronic Orbital methods and vibronic and resonance Raman spectroscopy, both newly available in Q-Chem 5.4. With a well-structured and rigorously-tested code base, Q-Chem offers an appealing platform for developing fast and efficient code.
