First Principles-Based Modeling of materials: Towards Computational Materials Design
out of 5 stars
20 Apr 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with accurate, first principles-based interatomic potentials is a powerful tool to uncover and characterize the molecular-level mechanisms that govern the chemical, mechanical and optical properties of materials. Such fundamental understanding is critical to...
The Rush to Market, Lack of Knowledge, and Public Trust
11 Apr 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Vivian Weil
What should rivet our attention now is the rush to get nano products into the market long before the nanoscale phenomena these products exploit are understood. Nanoscale materials often present unusual structures and activities as compared to ordinary-scale amounts of the same material. Research...
