RADIATE Spring School 2021

Astrid Berens

Originally planned to take place in conjunction with IBMM-2020, the school was postponed by almost a year and moved to the virtual realm due to the Corona pandemic.

The RADIATE spring school 2021took place from 28-30 April and was organized by IST in Lisbon, Portugal. The school focused on the basics of Ion Beam Modification of Materials.

The first day covered the fundamentals of ion solid interactions with emphasis on the modeling of physical processes to describe defect evolution and ion distributions. The relevant codes were described and both the binary collision and molecular dynamics approaches addressed. On the other days, the most used software codes for damage analysis, profile studies and lattice site location of the implanted ions were presented.
