Mission statement[edit]

Traditional approach to the creation of new materials and technologies which is based on the sequential prototype creation and introducing modifications after prototype testing requires large time and financial expenses. In the frame of this approach simulation in many cases is used just for description of the obtained experimental data and extrapolation of these data using particular model approximation. In this case the understanding of the detailed mechanism on the atomic level is not necessary. This fact does not allow utilizing the great amount of information on the properties of materials and processes which is obtained by the fundamental scientific researches.

Progress in theoretical methods, development of efficient computational algorithms, continuous exponential growth of computer resources and recent advances in massively parallel computing, make it possible to apply the alternative approach. This approach implies an a priori simulation of the materials and processes based on the detailed understanding of structure and mechanism on the atomic level. In the frame of this approach simulation precedes the prototype creation allowing to significantly decreasing of the amount of the experimental tests and hence to decrease the development cost and time and to decrease innovation risks. This is why the Kintech Lab's main activity is the development of methods, algorithms and corresponding software for the predictive multiscale modeling of the properties of materials, processes and devices based on the ab initio calculations, computer modeling and fundamental experimental data.
