Polymer Physics from NEMD

The investigation of polymer physics through NonEquilibrium Molecular Dynamics (NEMD) in the Computational Materials Research Group at the University of Tennessee is an ongoing research effort. In the Chemical Engineering Department, the team has included Dr. David Keffer, Dr. Brian Edwards, Chunggi Baig (grad student and post-doc), Bangwu Jiang (a post-doc), Tudor Ionescu (a Ph.D. student) Jun Mo Kim (a Ph.D. student), and Joseph Rajkumar (an M.S. student). The structures for H-branched C178H358 were provided by Chunggi Baig based on work done as a post-doc in the research group of Vlasis Mavrantzas at the University of Patras in Greece.

The images on these pages were created by Chunggi Baig and Jun Mo Kim. To view these images, you will require the free "Chime" Plug-in for your internet browser. (Here is a link to the chime download page.)

These pages also contain movies of the structures that can be viewed with your choice of avi player. These movies were created by a team of undergraduate researchers composed of Hannah Bailey, Matt Milazzo and Anne Wells.
