CPU cluster

For the simulation of molecular dynamics, suitable applications are developed in-house, which are used on the CPU cluster described here. These allow the simulation of technologically relevant materials with regard to different properties depending on temperature and pressure.
 
Application examples:

  • Growth of ZnO layers on amorphous SiO2 surfaces
  • Growth kinetics in the growth of CaF2 from the melt
  • Dislocation dynamics in multicrystalline Si
