Development of an HPC Platform for Plasma-Material Interactions and Nanostructuring

Davide Curreli

College: Engineering
Award year: 2015-2016

Curreli aims to improve the hPIC code, the first high-performance computing modeling platform for plasma-material interactions, by integrating a general multi-species, fully-kinetic particle-in-cell model of the plasma sheath and plasma boundary with a 3D model of the surface morphology. The end goal is to improve performance and scaling to enable large scale production runs.
