We show that Quantum Molecular Dynamics provides a powerful tool to extend and benchmark current opacities libraries into the complex regime of warm dense matter. In this regime, the medium can be constituted of electrons, protons, atoms and molecules, while plasma and many-body effects can not be treated as perturbations. Among the most notable features of this new approach for calculating Rosseland mean opacities is the ability to obtain a consistent set of material (equation-of-state), optical and electrical properties for various mixtures from the same simulation.
