Nowadays, ion beams play an important role for the development and characterisation of nanomaterials. For the characterisation of the latter by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and ion microscopy, it is essential to understand :
Understanding the underlying processes is only possible by getting insights into the atomic-scale mechanisms using numerical simulations.
The candidate for the Marie Curie Fellowship will have the opportunity to develop a project around the afore-described topic, based on numerical methods, and to contribute to the development ion-beam based nano-analytics.
The final project idea will emerge from the complementary backgrounds and expertise of applicant and supervisor.
