There is planned maintenance scheduled for nanoHUB on Monday, September 28 beginning at 12 p.m. EDT and lasting approximately 4 hours. All tool sessions will end and there will be an outage for tools and other features of the hub during the maintenance period. Please plan accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience. close
The NNIN/C at the University of Michigan will be hosting a presentation on “An Introduction to Materials Studio”, which will be broadcast live as a web based seminar.
Topic: An Introduction to Materials Studio
Date: July 25, 2013
Time: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm EDT.
Presenter: Michael Doyle, PhD,
Director of Product Marketing and Principal Scientist
Abstract: Materials Studio® is the one of the world’s most advanced client-server software system for advanced materials simulation and modeling. Materials Studio makes it easy to create and study molecular structures, lattices, surfaces, meso-scale structures and to exploiting stunning graphics capabilities to present your results. Materials Studio draws on well-validated and widely applied simulation methods including quantum mechanics, molecular mechanics, meso-scale modeling, analytical instrument simulation, and statistical correlations in to one easy-to-use modeling environment. These techniques are supported by structure-building and visualization capabilities and tools to analyze and present scientific data. This course will cover the basics of how to build structures within the materials studio environment, perform initial calculations, submit batch jobs and move models and structures from the atomistic to quantum and meso-scale regimes. The following are some of the highlights that will be covered.
• Managing projects using the Project Explorer.
• Sketching simple molecules.
• Sketching complex molecules such organometallics using the fragment sketcher.
• Defining fragments and repeat units to build polymers.
• Analyzing and adjusting geometrical properties such as torsions, angles and distances.
• Using the symmetry tools for molecular and periodic systems.
• Working with the different display style options.
• Integration with publishing software.
• Building crystals and surfaces.
• Building layered structures and crystal interfaces.
• Working with volumetric data – isosurfaces and slices.
