Participation of SCTMS employees in AYSS-2019 
23 April 2019

20190423-06Young scientists of SCTMS - senior researcher Roman Eremin and junior researcher Pavel Zolotarev participated in the XXIII International Conference of Young Scientists and Specialists (AYSS-2019, April 15-19, Dubna) organized by the association of young scientists and specialists of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.

The conference was attended by over 200 people, 60 of them were guests from 16 countries and 33 universities and research centers. Participants presented 126 oral and 40 poster presentations within 8 sections. The leading specialists of the JINR laboratories and INR RAS were invited to participate in the conference as speakers of the plenary session. Roman is a regular participant of AYSS conferences and this time he took part as one of the invited speakers.

In his report on “Computer modeling of disordered crystals”, Roman told about the peculiarities of crystal modeling by using combined approaches based on the density functional theory calculations, geometrical-topological analysis as implemented in the ToposPro package, and machine learning techniques. It covered mainly disordered crystals of cathode materials, solid electrolytes, and intermetallic compounds. The record of his (and others) report is available online.

The report "A combined approach for solid electrolytes investigation: handling geometrical/topological screening datasets" presented by Pavel Zolotarev in the section "Condensed Matter Physics", and the speaker himself was awarded the diploma "For the Best Report". Pavel told about the methods of computer simulation of ion transport using the topological analysis of the electron density distributions developed by the SCTMS scientists within the RFBR project implementation.
