What's happening?

Title:
Computational materials science from first principles.

Speaker: Geert Brocks (Computational Materials Science, UTwente)
Time: April 26, 2018, 10:00–11:00
Location: Differ, Alexander-zaal

As undergraduates we are taught that quantum mechanics forms the basis of all physical and chemical properties of materials. From a practical perspective, however, the fundamental quantum mechanical equations of motion can be solved for very small systems only.

Title:
Simulating and optimising turbulence in stellarators.

Speaker: Josefine Proll (Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion, TU/e)
Time: May 24, 2018, 10:00–11:00
Location: Differ, Alexander-zaal

Stellarators, the twisted siblings of the axisymmetric fusion experiments called tokamaks, have historically suffered from confining the heat of the plasma insufficiently compared with tokamaks and were therefore considered to be less promising candidates for a fusion reactor.

Title:
To be announced.

Speaker: Paola Diomede (Fusion Energy, DIFFER)
Time: June 7, 2018, 10:00–11:00
Location: Differ, Alexander-zaal

The CCER seminars are aimed at researchers interested in computational approaches to (energy) research. The seminar is small-scale, typically 15 participants, and interactive, offering lots of room for discussion. If you'd like to attend, just This email address is being protected from spambots.
