Simulation and visualization of ion-implantation in diamond and associated movie page
Recent projects are linked on the on the 2015, and 2016 pages,
and a manuscript was written about Lilach's project. (Both Computational Physics class and research projects combined on pages. The difference is in scope, and class projects may be on topics that are not of personal interest to me.)
Projects currently avaliable include:
- Percolation describes the flow of fluid or current thru networks and
when correlations are present between network sites, interesting structures can be found. Two recent projects are Liran's (three-dimensional stereo) and Shaked's, (analog experiment).
A new direction of percolation modelling of tissue networks opened in the group to study this structure which was completed by Livnat Cohen.
There might be a new percolation project opening in 2017.
- Mosaic (multimirror) telescopes need to be carefully phased in order to obtain quality images. Such systems are analogous to models of crystal surfaces, and their focusing can be done using ``simulated annealing''.
We need new graphics to view the process interactively, and the preparation
thereof is suited to a project for a physics/computer science student. See
http://phycomp.technion.ac.il/~phr76ja/athens/p5.html and links
thereon for an older description and the older graphics and also (full site coming soon) http://phycomp.technion.ac.il/~newphr76ja/CCP2014/talktitle.html for the most recent results of J.A., Erez Ribak, and MSc theses of Lee Yacobi and Irina Paykin, also published in PRE. This project has been begun by Dana Nissan.
and preparation of videos and web pages about elementary physics with an emphasis on stereo visualization with nvidia cards or OpenGL.
physics software and animations website for some older examples, and three recent projects of this type:
Visualizations of Fermi Surface by Shir Kolangi, Visualizations of Brillouin Zone by Arik Rond and
Zeeman effect by Alyssa Kostadinov.
- Models of materials that can be rotated thru three dimensions
can be prepared with a software package written by members of the
Computational Physics Group. This package requires more development
and is suited to project students with prior knowledge of Mesa or OpenGL.
for more information and the recent pages on
Hydrogen atom wavefunctions by Meytal Krief for one implementation. Meytal's results are now being used in Physics 3 classes, see on Physics Dept. news.
- Computer Alchemy, the modeling
of materials with
simulations. This is another topic that interests me at this point of time; and python interfaces for molecular dynamics codes is a special focus in 2017.
- AViz, the group's vizualization code has several tasks to be done; including versions for cygwin and windows. Knowledge of OpenGL and QT needed.
If you would like to learn more about these systems and look at some simple
computer demonstrations of the models please contact Dr. Joan Adler
in Room 603, ext 3937.
Projects 1 and 2 require two years
of undergraduate physics and enthusiasm for presenting physics
and promises help in learning html for preparing websites. These are
open to all
students at the Technion, project 2 for a student with good computing skills, project 3 is especially suited for someone interested in physics education and project 4 would
be especially suitable for a student from
materials science, or an engineering faculty.
Project 4 requires some familiarity with either
FORTRAN or C and will require the student to have or acquire familiarity with
UNIX/X11 as well as writing in html.
Project 4 will only be given to students who have the grades and potential
to remain at the Technion for graduate studies in the Physics Department,
with either the Computational Physics group or an experimental group.
