Materials Design, Inc. is thrilled to announce a two day MedeA training and workshop event in Paris, the City of Light, on the 14th and 15th of June. The workshop will take place at the Hotel Ibis Alésia. Should you require assistance in obtaining accommodations, please do not hesitate to contact us. In the mean time, we encourage you to browse the agenda below, and hope you find talks relevant to your area of expertise.
Materials Design, Inc.'s top scientists and developers, as well as special guest Prof. Georg Kresse of the University of Viena, lead developer of VASP, are on hand to deliver talks and participate in stimulating discussion on the topics we all passionately pursue.
Thursday, 14 June, 2012 - Hands on Software Training
Training will last from 09:00 until 17:00 and provide you with the opportunity for hands-on training with MedeA and the chance to interact with our scientific support team. We will provide coffee breaks as well as a buffet lunch during this all-day event. After the training, we invite you to join us at our Montrouge offices for an informal cocktail reception.
Application examples include:
Dielectric function of thin films (HfO2, SiO2, TiO2) to determine equivalent oxide thickness (EOT) and optical properties
Transport at Interfaces: Schottky barrier of Ni/Si(001) is reduced by presence of Sulfur
