In this project, focusing on the fact that the properties of materials are deeply related to their internal structures such as atom arrangements, we theoretically predicted material structures and properties through computer simulations from the perspective of computational material science based on the fundamental theory on materials. In addition, we set our goals on the clarification of the proper route to yield novel materials and creation of novel substances along with carrying out experimental work at an atomic/molecular level.
This research brought various results including; the establishment of the method for predicting atom arrangement in Ni-based super-ally; understanding of the mechanism of reinforcing ultra-strength ferric fibers; establishment of the method for relative transformation simulation under complicated environment where stress and temperature change simultaneously; defining the mechanism of the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) crystal line growth in term of Ga, As, Si and Ge; and the success of analysis of RHEED strength.
