R&D Areas/Projects

  • Heteroepitaxial and thin film growth Diffusion in metals and ionic materials Design of multifunctional materials Our research group is involved in i) the development of accurate multiscale models spanning electronic to continuum scales, and ii) employing these multiscale models along with standard modeling and optimization techniques to design new multifunctional materials. Specific applications include batteries, fuel cells, opto-electronic devices (quantum dots) and heterogeneous catalysis. A list of modeling tools we employ include: Density Functional Theory (DFT) Molecular dynamics (MD) Transition State Theory (TST) Accelerated Molecular Dynamics techniques (AMD) Kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) Temporally accelerated KMC, e.g., tau-leap KMC methods Spatially coarse-grained KMC (CGMC) Continuum mesoscopic equations (CME)
