Seminar abstract:

New carbon materials with improved mechanical, electrical, chemical, and optical properties are predicted and considered to be very promising for practical application. Carbon-based materials in the form of films, fabrics, aerogels or microstructural materials are known by their large surface areas and pore volumes, light weight, a great variety of structural morphology. Such unique structures can then be employed for a variety of purposes, for example, production of new electronic devices, energy storage, fabrication of new composite materials. Clear understanding of their properties via different simulation techniques is required nowadays. This lecture will address the modern state in the molecular dynamics simulation of fabrication, and property characterization for carbon-based materials.
