NIC research group Computational Materials Physics (April 2011 - March 2016)
The NIC research group finished their work at the end of March 2016 and said farewell with a symposium on 7 April 2016.
Head of the NIC research group
|Prof. Dr. Martin Müser|
The NIC research group Computational Materials Physics contributes to the development and the application of computer simulations from the atomistic to the continuum scale. Its mission is to improve our understanding of materials with the ultimate goal of providing guidelines for the improvement of materials.
Particular research topics:
- Nanotribology, friction and dissipation mechanisms
- Contact mechanics, leakage, and percolation
- Development of force fields for redox reactions
- Energy materials, electrode-electrolyte interfaces
- Principles of optoelectronic memory materials
