Курсы в рамках основного направления “Наука и технологии в энергетике” (на английском языке):
Описание курса (англ.) : The goal of this course is to provide a survey of materials chemistry and surface spectroscopy techniques. Further emphasis will be placed on interfacial chemistry of materials surfaces and ex situ and in situ study using various surface sensitive spectroscopy methods. The course will rely on strong undergraduate math/physics background the students, however no background in materials will be assumed or required.
Описание курса (англ.): The course will provide a graduate level overview of modern atomistic computer simulations used to model, understand and predict the properties of realistic technologically important materials. The class will emphasize use of practical techniques, algorithms and programs to bridge theory and applications, from the discovery of materials to their use in real-world technologies. Several laboratories will give students direct experience with the basis for the simulation techniques as well as practical knowledge on how to use computational modeling and how to present and interpret the results of simulations. Bridges from atomic to complex systems will demonstrate potential of different theories to applications relevant to multiple major industries in the future, including nanotechnology and energy.
Описание курса (англ.): The course teaches fundamentals of modern Materials Science (Part I of the course) and provides a survey of materials (Part II), covering all relevant Skoltech research areas and beyond, with brief explanation of structural, electronic, physical, chemical or other properties of materials relevant for their practical use, or from the point of view of utilizing their unique properties in applications. It is a core course in Materials Science educational track providing a reference knowledgebase for the rest of material-specific courses as well for student research.
