Atomic structure of nanosystems from first-principles simulations and microscopy experiments
Location: Helsinki, Finland - Stockholm, Sweden
- Methods - application of first principles methods to atomistic modeling of nanoscale materials, including advanced approaches for studying excited states, and the limits of accuracy in electronic structure calculations of defects.
- TEM image simulations based on DFT data
- Simulations of EELS and ELNES spectra
- Advanced computational techniques for STM and AFM
- Simulations of STM spectra
- Production of defects under electron beam and minimization of the damage
- Progress in aberration-corrected high resolution transmission electron microscopy (AC-HRTEM) studies of carbon and other nanostructures
- Electron-beam-mediated engineering of nanostructures
- STM/AFM manipulation of nanostructures
- Surface chemistry at the nanoscale - particular emphasis will be placed on those systems where defects and impurities clearly dominate reactive properties.
