  • Scope of the Conference

    COSIRES 2004 is the 7th International Conference on Computer Simulation of Radiation Effects in Solids. This series of conferences addresses the development and application of advanced computer simulation techniques to the study of the interaction of energetic particles (from several eV to some MeV) with solids. Due to the permanent increase of computer power this research field is growing fast. The application of computer simulations leads to a better understanding of basic microscopic mechanisms during and after irradiation. Such processes are often not accessible by experimental methods since they occur on very small time and length scales. The computer simulation techniques are not only used for investigations of basic phenomena but also increasingly applied in the development of advanced industrial technologies. Conference topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Computational modeling of

    • Ion- and plasma-induced physical and chemical effects at surfaces and interfaces
    • Formation and evolution of radiation defects in metals, ceramics and carbon-based materials
    • Doping of semiconductors using ion implantation and subsequent annealing
    • Ion beam synthesis of nanostructures
    • Formation of thin films by ion- and plasma-assisted deposition

    Progress in the development of simulation techniques

    • Ab-initio, atomistic, and mesoscopic methods
    • Combination of different simulation methods, multi-scale computer simulation
    • Development of simulation techniques for ion beam analysis
