Psi-k Workshop on Theory and Simulation Challenges of Nano Phase-Change Materials

13th - 15th of September 2017, University of Warwick

This workshop will discuss strategies for the computational modelling of nano phase-change materials (NPCMs) and related phenomena. The limitations of currently available modelling tools, as well as possible solutions, will be reviewed. Topics considered include the thermodynamics and kinetics of nano-crystalline phase change processes and the connection between theory and experiments via computation of spectral properties. We hope to motivate collaborations and further advancements in the methodologies for modelling NPCMs.
