Topic: Materials Modeling and Simulation for Nanotechnology.
Date: April 11, 2013
Time: 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT.

Presenter: Michael Doyle, Phd, Accelrys.


Discover how to streamline your innovation cycle and drive better, faster results with Materials modeling and simulation for Nanotechnology. This webinar will focus on Materials Studio, a comprehensive nano materials modeling and simulation application designed for scientists in materials R&D.

It is in the nature of nano materials – they are non-linear and their properties do not reflect those of the bulk substances. In fact, their interactions can provide access to new chemistry and catalytic reactions that could not be performed at the bulk scale. Materials Studio has a number of modules specifically designed and optimized for dealing with Nano scale systems. These range from nano and amorphous material builders through to the more extensive quantum mechanical tools such as CASTEP and DMOL. In this webinar, a number of examples will be presented of leading edge science from the atomistic, quantum and meso scale areas.

Speaker Bio: Michael Doyle earned his PhD, Masters and Bachelor degrees at University of Cambridge in the UK. He previously worked with ICI agrochemicals, BP Central Research, and BPX, then joined Accelrys in 2001. His background is in Modeling, Simulation, Statistics, Informatics, and he has special interests in Catalysis, exploration and formulation tools.
