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
