Computational Investigation of Point Defect Formation and Migration in Nuclear Fuels
08 Mar 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Susan Sinnott
The stabilities of selected fission products are investigated as a function of stoichiometry in uranium oxide. The approach is density functional theory (DFT) that is used to calculate the...
Density Functional Theory: A great physics success story
01 Mar 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kieron Burke
Density functional theory began with the work of Thomas and Fermi, at about the same time as Schroedinger wrote his famous equation. I will explain in general terms what density functional...
From density functional theory to defect level in silicon: Does the “band gap problem” matter?
3.0 out of 5 stars
01 Oct 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Peter A. Schultz
Modeling the electrical effects of radiation damage in semiconductor devices requires a
detailed description of the properties of point defects generated during and subsequent to
