2007 NSTI Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show - Nanotech 2007 - 10th Annual

Computer aided design of nano-scale technologies

Modelling of nano-scale systems is an important but difficult task. It is important because the corresponding experiments are often cumbersome and expensive, and it is usually only possible to obtain indirect information of the state of the nano-scale system. On the other hand, modelling is very difficult since it requires an atomistic description of the system; and a nano-scale system still has millions of atoms, and is thus very large on an atomic scale. Often the system interacts with a macroscopic system, and it is important to take into account how its properties are influenced by the properties of the environment. This talk will introduce the theory behind atomic-scale modelling and discuss what properties can be simulated. The theory will be illustrated by case studies obtained with Atomistix ToolKit. The systems include carbon nanotubes, 1-D graphene sheets, molecular electronic devices, atomic wires, spintronics devices and interfaces between different materials.
