[Illinois] CSE Seminar Series: Advances in First-principles Computational Materials Science
20 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Elif Ertekin
Title: Advances in first-principles computational materials scienceSubtitle: Things we can calculate now, that we couldn't when I was in grad school.The capability to rationally design new materials with tailored properties and functionality on a computer remains a grand challenge whose success...
Mesoscopic Simulations of Nitromethane
12 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Jean-Bernard Maillet
We present recent developments on the dissipative particle model that allow simulating the physico-chemical behavior of a molecular material at the mesoscale level. Several ingredients have been added to the previous model, in particular concerning the intermolecular force field and the...
Addressing Molecular Dynamics Time-scale Issues to Study Atomic-scale Friction
12 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Ashlie Martini
This presentation will include an introduction to several accelerated molecular dynamics methods. However, particular focus will be given to parallel replica (ParRep) dynamics in which atomistic simulations are run parallel in time to extend their total duration. The ParRep method is based on...
Atomistic Simulations of Reliability
01 Jul 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
Discrete impurity effects in terms of their statistical variations in number and position in the inversion and depletion region of a MOSFET, as the gate length is aggressively scaled, have recently been researched as a major cause of reliability degradation observed in intra-die and die-to-die...
