    November, 29 2023, Noor E Karishma Shaik


    IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) offers professional development opportunities in modeling and simulation of nanoscale devices and materials. This blog post focuses on IEEE Nanotechnology Technical Committee on Modeling and Simulation, highlighting their monthly webinars and summer internship program for high school students. They are also looking for new committee members. For more information, visit their website.

    Modeling and simulation have revolutionized the field of nanotechnology, allowing scientists and engineers to explore the behavior of nanoscale devices and materials in ways never before possible. This has led to significant advancements in various technological areas, bridging scientific disciplines and driving innovation. The IEEE Nanotechnology Council Technical Committee on Modeling and Simulation (TC-10) recognizes the importance of numerical and physical modeling in device and material design.

    Dr. Tue Gunst

    The committee is organizing a webinar series that brings together experts to discuss cutting-edge topics in modelling and simulation. The upcoming webinar is scheduled for December 12, 2023, and will be presented by Dr. Tue Gunst, a Senior Application Engineer at Synopsys QuantumATK. The webinar, titled “QuantumATK: Interfacing cutting-edge practical nanoelectronic applications with advanced atomistic simulations,” will explore the integration of atomistic simulation methods into realistic nanoelectronic device models. Dr Gunst will showcase the use of machine-learned force fields and multi-model simulators to address nanoelectronic research problems, highlighting the latest trends in QuantumATK modelling. If you are interested in joining, please register for free here. For any further information or to speak at future webinars, please reach out to the TC-10 Co-Chair, Josef Weinbub.

    IEEE NTC also offers a Summer Internship program for high school students in collaboration with Eastern Washington University and the University of Washington. This program provides an opportunity for students to engage in hands-on research on topics such as 2D Materials, Neuromorphic Computing, and Technical Writing. With guidance from mentors like Arpan De, a graduate student who had a positive experience in the program, students explore the applications and science behind nanomaterials, quantum dots and neural networks. The remote internship lasts for six or more weeks between June and August, offering a valuable learning experience for aspiring young scientists. If you are interested in joining the IEEE NTC TC-10 committee or mentoring students in the Summer Internship program, please reach out to M. P. Anantram or Arindam Kumar Das. High school students can apply for the Summer Internship program in late February 2024 at the SPARK SIP website.

    IEEE NTC is seeking new committee members from academia and industry who specialize in Modeling & Simulation. Committee members review submissions for IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) publications and participate in organizing special sessions at IEEE NTC conferences. Don’t miss the opportunity to contribute to the exciting field of nanotechnology and be part of the advancements in modeling and simulation! If you are interested in joining the TC-10 committee, please email the TC-10 Chair, Roza Kotlyar.
