Multiscale Modelling and Open Innovation Platformsonline course
The design, processing and manufacturing of advanced devices involves a plethora of physical phenomena in materials that appear in many different length scales. These range from chemical interactions, microstructure thermodynamics, rheology, and phase changes to opto-electronic interactions in full performing devices. The theoretical understanding of all these phenomena withing a comprehensive multi-scale view is paramount for optimizing materials properties, their processing technologies, and their device functionalities and performance metrics.
In this summer school, academic and industrial experts will introduce students to multiscale modelling. By the end of the course, students will have a good grasp of the fundamental physics and phenomena in each scale as well as a first understanding of the numerical methods involved in the simulations. Many examples and case studies, both in basic and applied (industrial) research, will also be presented. Lectures include:
• Electronic Modelling
• Atomistic Modelling
• Coarse grain Modelling
• Mesoscale Modelling
• Continuum Modelling
• Device Modelling
Also included are lectures on newly established Open Innovation Platforms. These include simulation frameworks capable of handing and executing a series of multiscale simulations, where the output of one scale becomes the input for the next. Several European projects working on such Open Simulation Platforms will be presented, by the Researchers coordinating them, to give students a glimpse of all the exciting developments in Europe on materials modelling. Lectures include:
• Multiscale Simulation Frameworks
• EU projects on Open Innovation Platforms
