Contributions of the field Simulation

 

CALPHAD method

With the CALPHAD method (CALculation of PHAse Diagrams), which is based on the calculation of phase equilibrium states and thermodynamic properties in a defined system, material properties can be calculated.

 

Modeling of the coating on 3D components

At the Fraunhofer IST, a new method for accelerated the modelling of the film thickness profile on 3D substrates has been developed.

 

Simulation of dust particle movement

A particle simulation developed at the Fraunhofer IST enables the prediction of contamination of dust in plasma coating systems.

 

Simulation of layer morphology and layer stoichiometry

For the optimization of low-pressure coating processes, a parallelized simulation environment was developed.

 

Simulation of an HWCVD process for silicon deposition

At the Fraunhofer IST, a simulation model was developed to optimize the HWCVD process for Si deposition.
