The Computational Modelling Laboratory for Materials and Life Sciences is devoted to developing complex numerical models and high-performance calculation tools, mainly in electromagnetism, micromagnetism and nanotechnology. These skills are aimed at designing nanostructured magnetic materials (e.g. nanoparticles, nanostructured thin films), magnetic nano/microsensors and electromagnetic devices for applications in life sciences and metrology.
High-resolution in silico models are also realised to study the interaction mechanisms between biological tissues and nanomaterials (e.g. magnetic nanoparticles for hyperthermia, biomedical imaging and drug delivery).
These objectives are achieved by developing efficient numerical methodologies and their combination with parallel computing techniques based on graphics cards (GPUs) and advanced data analysis methods.
