Abstract :

Nanometerâ??scale systems exhibit rich, interesting and novel behavior when adsorbed onto surfaces, in part because the species are confined and also because the adsorbate species interact more strongly than in the bulk. Organics such as pentacene, alkanes and fullerenes on graphene and graphite exhibit a wide variety of epitaxy, phases and phase transitions that are of fundamental scientific as well as technological importance. This presentation will provide an overview of molecular dynamics (MD) simulation techniques as well as mathematical characterization of the various phases and phase transitions realized by these fascinating systems.
