To investigate and model the entire process chain for gas-phase synthesis of nanomaterials including atomic simulations, models for reaction kinetics, turbulence/chemistry interactions, and synthesis reactors, while setting predetermined materials properties.
To develop models and simulation methods for the cost-effective and low-emission synthesis of highly specific gas-phase nanomaterials. This work is based on our in-depth understanding of the entire process chain.
- Reduction and optimization of reaction mechanisms
- Simulation of aerosol dynamics
- Basic structure simulation of turbulent reactors
- Population balance modeling using kinetic Monte-Carlo simulations
We monitor all of the following steps of experimental research as we seek to map out and model synthesis and processing based on a sound physical/chemical foundation:
We work in close collaboration with UDE’s Center for Computational Sciences and Simulation (CCSS), whose business offices are also located at the NETZ building.
