Webinar: Diffusion and You:
Batteries, Catalysis, Alloys, Corrosion,
and the Stock Market
July 2, 2020
Join Dr. Erich Wimmer and Dr. Benoit Minisini in our next webinar:
Diffusion processes are ubiquitous in materials science and a daunting array of phenomena affecting all of us. This webinar will show that deep understanding of diffusion mechanisms and quantitative predictions of temperature-dependent diffusion coefficients are now possible at an unprecedented level of detail and accuracy due to the remarkable capabilities of advanced atomistic simulations.
Illustrative examples will include:
Diffusion processes in Li-ion batteries
Diffusion on surfaces
Diffusion of hydrogen in steel and zirconium alloys
Diffusion of defects in solids
Diffusion in organic liquids
Diffusion in molten metals
Oxygen diffusion related to corrosion

Dr. Erich Wimmer
Erich Wimmer received his doctoral degree from the Technical University in Vienna, Austria. As a post-doctoral fellow in the group of Professor A. J. Freeman at Northwestern University, Erich was instrumental in the development of the original FLAPW method. Prior to co-founding Materials Design, Erich managed software development and led teams at CRAY Research and BIOSYM Technologies.
Dr. Benoit Minisini
Benoit Minisini received an Engineer PhD in physics from the University of Maine with acknowledgment of his research conducted on polymer nanocomposites using molecular modeling. In the following years, he worked as a researcher and lecturer at ISMANS, employing a broad range of modeling tools, and covering areas from solid state physics to molecular chemistry before ending as academic dean. He is the author of more than 30 papers and participates in tens of industrials projects implying both simulation and experimental works. He joined Materials Design in 2017 where he is now member of the research contract team.
