Centre of Excellence in Computational Nanoscience: COMP

COMP Research

Aalto University/Unto Rautio

The COMP Centre of Excellence (2012-2017) strived at a multiscale approach to condensed-matter and materials research, ranging from the quantum world of ångströms and femtoseconds to macroscopic length and time scales. The research covered such areas as electronic structure and related properties, mesoscopic dynamics and transport, and the complex behaviour of nonequilibrium and disordered systems. Of particular interest are the nanoworld phenomena, the understanding of which depends on predictive modelling and simulation.

In addition, the work carried out at COMP involved research into theoretical methods as well as simulation and computing techniques, such as algorithms, parallel and grid computing, and scientific visualisation.
