Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 4: Geometry Optimization and Seeing What You're Doing
13 Feb 2008   Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
In this lecture, we discuss various methods for finding the ground state structure of a given system by minimizing its energy. Derivative and nonderivative methods are discussed, as well as the importance of the starting guess and how to find or generate good initial structures. We also briefly...

Computing the Horribleness of Soft Condensed Matter
19 Oct 2007   Contributor(s):: Eric Jakobsson
A great triumph of computer simulations 40 years ago was to make the liquid state of matter understandable in terms of physical interactions between individual molecules. Prior to the first simulations of liquid argon and liquid water in the 1960's, there was no quantitatively rigorous molecular...

Dynamics on the Nanoscale: Timedomain ab initio studies of quantum dots, carbon nanotubes and moleculesemiconductor interfaces
31 Jan 2008   Contributor(s):: Oleg Prezhdo
Device miniaturization requires an understanding of the dynamical response of materials on the nanometer scale. A great deal of experimental and theoretical work has been devoted to characterizing the excitation, charge, spin, and vibrational dynamics in a variety of novel materials, including...

Microscale Ionic Wind for Local Cooling Enhancement
26 Oct 2007   Contributor(s):: David B Go
As the electronics industry continues to develop small, highly functional, mobile devices, new methods of cooling are required to manage the thermal requirements of the not only the chip but the entire system. Comfortable skin temperatures, small form factors, and limited power consumption are...
