Simulation tools are offered to:
(i) account for the thermal response in terms of high-carrier density excitation
(ii) predict the induced structural modifications.
One of the important issues that rises when materials are exposed to extreme irradiation conditions generated by various types of electromagnetic sources, including synchrotron sources, pulsed and free-electron lasers is the estimation of the material structural and phase changes. Such changes are inadvertently dependent on material absorption properties, and the irradiation parameters and conditions. In this context, in order to link the anticipated material structural and phase changes with the irradiating source parameters and experimental measurements, a multiscale theoretical modelling toolbox is offered to describe the physical fundamentals and mechanisms that account for the associated experimental observations after single and multiple pulse irradiation at high-carrier density excitation conditions.
The multi-scale simulation code comprises the following modules that are material and source parameters dependent:
