Subproject B.2

Atomistic simulation of internal interfaces in copper matrix alloys

Which alloying elements lead to copper matrix alloys with high strengths and high electrical conductivities? How do these properties depend on embedded particles and their interfaces?

In this project kinetic Monte Carlo simulations are applied to model precipitation. Material properties of the obtained structures are determined by molecular dynamics simulations and by ab initio calculations. The main objective is to understand which chemical compositions and interface configurations lead to both high strengths and high conductivities.
