2004 Summer School on Computational Materials Science
Introduction to Computational Nanotechnology
On this page:
This short course will explore a range of computational approaches relevant for nanotechnology. Instructional materials are based on cutting edge, contemporary research, with an emphasis on problems in nano-scale science and engineering. The instructional level of the school will be appropriate to graduate students and post-docs, and will include both lectures and computer laboratories.
Topics will include:
- Density functional theory, applied to the study of electronic properties of nanostructures
- Non-equilibrium Green's functions for transport application
- Carbon nanotubes and molecular electronics
- NEMS (nano-elecrical-mechanical systems)
- ionic transport in biological and biomimetic structures
- numerical methods.
