QUEMIX will participate in the "Quantum-Theory-Based Multiscale Simulations towards the Development of Next-generation Energy-saving Semiconductor Devices" project, for which Nagoya University is the representative institution, selected by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as part of the "Program for Promoting Research on the Supercomputer "Fugaku" (FY2020 - FY2022).
The "Program for Accelerated Research and Development of Innovative Technology for Future" has been implemented by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) since FY2020 to support the development of applications and research and development that will contribute to solving social and scientific issues that need to be addressed nationally using "Fugaku", and to create world-leading results from the early stage of the shared use of "Fugaku". This project has been conducted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) since FY2020. The selected proposals will be able to use the computing resources of the supercomputer "Fugaku" on a priority basis free of charge.
The primary objective of the "Quantum Multiscale Simulation for Energy-Saving Next-Generation Semiconductor Devices" project is to perform advanced high-performance computing on the supercomputer "Fugaku" by developing and upgrading material calculation applications that elucidate and predict the properties of materials based on quantum theory, and in particular to clarify the scientific properties of the interfaces and thin-film growth surfaces of energy-saving next-generation semiconductor devices that support a sustainable society.
With Nagoya University as the representative institution and several universities and companies participating as collaborating institutions, we aim to create a new paradigm for manufacturing through face-to-face collaboration between computational science and experimental science.
QUEMIX will develop and provide computational algorithms that maximize the performance of the supercomputer "Fugaku", as well as consulting activities for computations at representative, cooperating, and partner institutions. Through these activities, we will contribute to the development of next-generation devices from materials calculations.
