Density Functional Theory Simulation of Rhodium Nanoframes and Carbon Nanotube–Graphene Pillars

Density Functional Theory Simulation of Rhodium Nanoframes and Carbon Nanotube–Graphene Pillars

As part of his applied project for his Professional Science Master’s in Nanoscience at ASU, Ben Folsom constructed theoretical models for recently synthesized hollowed rhodium nanoframe and covalently bonded carbon nanotube–graphene pillars based on the TEM images provided in the source publications. Using density functional theory (DFT) calculations he investigated the interaction of nanoframes and nanotube pillars.

Summer Book Club 2014: Molecular Simulations and Theory

Summer Book Club 2014: Molecular Simulations and Theory

This summer’s Lab Book Club is designed to provide a thorough review of fundamental concepts for understanding biomolecular simulation and, in particular,molecular dynamics simulations (MD). The material is primarily based on chapters from Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Molecular Simulation by Mark Tuckerman.
