Multi-scale computational study of the dependence between thin film properties and deposition parameters during energetic sputter deposition process

[TheChamp-Sharing]
The aim of this Ph.D. thesis is to gain understanding on the influence of the deposition parameters on the initial thin film growth stages via a multi-scale approach based on kinetic Monte Carlo (kMC) algoithm. To simulate the growth under energetic conditions, relevant elementary mechanisms will be determined using DFT (VASP) and/or MD (LAMMPS) simulations and incorporated into a developed realistic-growth-conditions kMC code. To complete this multiscale methodology, the outcome of the code will be benchmarked against dedicated experimental studies thanks to in situ and real-time diagnostics available in the laboratory, to which the candidate could actively participate.
