Science Jam #21: A computational model of graphene

What is Science Jam? Read more>>

Leading researcher: Ferederico D'Ambrosio, Simulation of Complex Systems

Abstract

Graphene is a very interesting material for a theoretical study. Among its many properties, it is a 2D crystal (i.e. it tends to form a single sheet one atom thick) in its purest form but defects will generate a buckling in the material. We introduce a computational model of buckled graphene, present some preliminary results obtained from it and discuss the main challenges of the model.

The lunch before the Science Jam is free for all the participants. Please register by Wednesday 15th May.
