Learning Module: Bonding and Band Structure in Silicon
Group Wiki Page:
The main goal of this learning module is to introduce students to the correlation between structure and electronic properties,and help them develop a more intuitive understanding of the origin of bands in a material.
The module consists of:
Two introductory lectures (50 minutes each) available...
Resources for Materials Science and Engineering
This is a draft accumulation of the electronic structure and molecular dynamics codes hosted on nanoHUB.
We will need to link properly to the tools and the supplemental material.
Electronic structure calculations performed by...
Molecular dynamics simulations of materials
= Molecular dynamics simulations of materials ==
By Alejandro Strachan
What is MD?
Molecular dynamics involves the numerical solution of the classical equations of motion (F=ma) for every single atom in material. The result is a very detailed description of the temporal evolution of the...
Learning Module: Atomic Picture of Plastic Deformation in Metals
The main goal of this learning module is to introduce students to the atomic-level processes responsible for plastic deformation in crystalline metals and help them develop a more intuitive understanding of how materials work at molecular scales. The module consists of:
• Two introductory...
Purdue Workshop—Predictive materials modeling and simulations: nano- and micro-mechanics
This workshop will focus on recent progress and current challenges in the area of experimentally validated, predictive modeling of mechanical properties of nano- or micro-engineered materials. Areas of interest include micro- and nano-electromechanical devices and polymer...
NCN Nano Electro-Mechanical Systems
NEMS is an integration of mechanical, electrical, fluidic, optical, chemical, biological and other components. We often think of this integration as occurring on a chip, but self-sensing/actuating probes in Scanning Probe Microscopy instruments are also truly nanoelectro-mechanical systems. ...
NCN Nanophotonics and Metamaterials
Nanophotonics involves light and matter interacting on the nanoscale; while biophotonics addresses the ways that light and biological matter interact. Nanophotonics is especially relevant to the development of chemical and biological sensors and to new information processing and communications...
