Nanotechnology and nanomaterials are hot topics in materials science. Simply defined, nanotechnology is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale to develop materials, devices and other structures at a scale of 1 to 100 nanometers. A recent European Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) project called "NanoInterface" evaluated the use of modeling and simulation, in conjunction with experimental data, to understand interfacial behaviour of metal-oxide-polymer interfaces for nanoelectronic devices. Accelrys participated in this project with a view to developing tools for simulating the interfacial properties, properties of the bulk network polymer, storing the data and deploying the tools through a simplified web interface. In this presentation, Dr. Stephen Todd of Accelrys will talk about the work done to support this project and demonstrate the resulting simplified interface and associated reporting tools.
Topics Covered / What Participants Will Learn:
• How modeling and simulation methods and procedures can be easily deployed to non-experts
• How scientists can use computational science in the development of nanomaterials and devices today
• Recent advances in simulation technology that support even more advanced nanomaterials modeling
