Atomistic Simulations of Semiconductors and Oxides
Expired 7 years agoInactive Job
- Research is pursued in energetic materials dynamics, propulsion/flight physics, projectile warhead mechanics, terminal effects phenomena, armor/survivability technologies, environmental chemistry, and advanced materials (energetic, metals, ceramics, polymers, composite/hybrids, and mechanics) for armor, armament, missiles, ground vehicles, helicopters, and individual soldier applications necessary for maintaining and ensuring supremacy in future land warfare.
- The goal of the simulations is to find an effect of substitutional and interstitial point defects and extended defects (dislocations, stacking faults, and grain boundaries) on electric, photovoltaic and mechanical properties of the materials at normal conditions and at elevated pressure and temperature.
- The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) provides opportunities to participate in ARL’s on-going and applied research and development projects through its programs in: Computational & Information Science, Human Research and Engineering, Survivability & Lethality Analysis, Sensors & Electron Devices, Weapons & Materials Research, and Vehicle Technology.
- First principles calculations are done in Car-Parrinello and Born-Oppenheimer approximations, classical dynamics is done with potentials generated on the basis of DFT calculations.
- Summer Faculty Fellows: Summer Faculty Fellows must meet the requirements of the Postdoctoral Fellows or the Senior Researcher as described above.
