Graduate Seminar - Probing the Assembly and Properties of Soft Materials with Advanced Sampling

Graduate Seminar presented by the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering

Invited Speaker: Jonathan K. Whitmer, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME

Abstract: Soft Materials, encompassing (but not limited to) polymers, colloids, and liquid crystals are fascinating systems where molecular interactions often conspire to create new phases and emergent properties. Free energies provide essential information about the properties and structure of these materials, but calculations can be onerous, as the systems can be complex, and useful analytical expressions may not be present...more
