Phd research subjects on: “Atomic-scale friction and molecular dynamics”
Structural and dynamical properties of overlayers and sliding interfaces. (Nicola Manini)
Theoretical/computational simulation on:
- solid/solid interfaces;
- lubricated friction;
- monolayers of colloidal particles in a optical periodic potential.
The adopted techniques include:
- many-body techniques;
- continuum models;
- classical molecular dynamics simulations.
