Journal Club Theme of November 2014: Catalyzed Growth of Semiconductor Nanowires - Multiscale Models

Introduction

Happy Halloween!

In this issue of the Journal Club, I would like to introduce the problem of catalyzed growth of semiconductor nanowires and ways to model it.  I would provide web links to only a few articles, hoping that you would download and actually read them so that we can have a more in-depth discussion.

Postdoctoral Position Opening at Stanford University

Prof. Wei Cai at the Mechanical Engineering Department of Stanford University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on the modeling of grain structure evolution in the surface layer under friction.  The major task of this project is the development of a phase field model for grain/sub-grain structure evolution under friction.  It is likely that molecular dynamics and dislocation dynamics simulations would be required as well to obtain a good physical understanding of the process.

Postdoctoral Position Opening at Stanford University

Prof. Wei Cai at the Mechanical Engineering Department of Stanford University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to contribute to the ParaDiS program (http://paradis.stanford.edu).  This is a large scale parallel program for dislocation dynamics simulations for metal plasticity.  A suitable candidate should have strong backgrounds on numerical methods and parallel programming, as well as solid mechanics and/or materials science.

Open Junior Faculty Positions in Stanford ME

There are two open junior faculty positions in Stanford’s Mechanical Engineering department.  One is in the area of biomechanical engineering (broadly defined) and the second is theoretical and computational fluid mechanics (broadly defined).

Dislocations 2008 International Conference

We are pleased to announce Dislocations 2008, an international conference on the fundamentals of plastic deformation and other physical phenomena where the dislocations play pivotal roles.  The conference will take place on October 13-17, 2008 at the Gold Coast Hotel, Hong Kong, China.  More information about the Dislocations 2008 conference can be found at the following web site:

New Book: Computer Simulations of Dislocations, by Vasily V. Bulatov and Wei Cai

Companion web site http://micro.stanford.edu ISBN:0-19-852614-8, Hard cover, 304 pages, Nov. 2006, US $74.50.

This book presents a broad collection of models and computational methods - from atomistic to continuum - applied to crystal dislocations. Its purpose is to help students and researchers in computational materials sciences to acquire practical knowledge of relevant simulation methods. Because their behavior spans multiple length and time scales, crystal dislocations present a common ground for an in-depth discussion of a variety of computational approaches, including their relative strengths, weaknesses and inter-connections. The details of the covered methods are presented in the form of "numerical recipes" and illustrated by case studies. A suite of simulation codes and data files is made available on the book's website to help the reader "to learn-by-doing" through solving the exercise problems offered in the book. This book is part of an Oxford Series on Materials Modelling.
