PhD defence stuff:

Current research:
My PhD research activities include study of different properties of carbon nanotubes and other nanoscale objects. Computer simulations are performed and results are compared to experimental observations and other researchers' results.


Ongoing projects:
  • Temperature dependence of sorption rates of assorted molecules on carbon nanotubes ( abstract in PDF format)
    I want to acknowledge the financial and logistics support of the EC through the TRACS Programme (2003) that permited the development and production runs of the parallel Molecular Dynamics code used in the study.

    Here are some nifty-gifty pictures and videos obtained during the study that I think you may enjoy:
    • Potential energy distribution in a bent nanotube computed with a modified Brenner-Tersoff empirical bond-order potential.

    • Dynamic study of smashing a (10,10) carbon nanotube with an external force applied axially. Simulation time is 4 ps. The interraction potential is a modified Brenner-Tersoff empirical bond- order potential. Please note that the colour scale here does not match the colours scale of the previous image.

  • Parallel Programming with MPI
