Computation Nanoscience


      Nanoscience has become one of the most important fields of science as it encompasses a range of techniques rather than a single discipline. It has a wide spectrum of applications in medicine and health, physics, engineering and chemistry. The fast development in both theoretical methods and computational techniques makes it possible for modern computational nanoscience to achieve a new level of chemical accuracy. The department of computational nanoscience covers modern challenges in computational science, within the context of the rapidly evolving field of nanotechnology. It addresses the use of computational chemistry to explain and solve up-to-date problems presented by the world's leading academics and industry.


      This department will establish three main sections; Catalyst and Material Chemistry Section, Using non Empirical quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics, this section aims to clarify the chemical reactions and dynamics of molecular systems, and to promote novel molecular synthesis, as well as researches that will lead to better understanding of biological phenomena; Biological Science Section, This section aims to study hierarchical mechanisms in self-organization of biological systems through computational analyses of dynamics and functions of bio-molecules and their complexes, and through prediction of structure and function of proteins and Nanotechnology Section which aims to study the applications of nanotubes and nanoparticles in chemistry, biology and physics.
