Simulation Utilities for Soft and Hard Interfaces
SUSHI calculates the equilibrium and non-equilibrium structures in polymer blends and block copolymers by solving the Self Consistent Field theory, GRPA(General Random Phase Approximation) and Hybrid method.
SUSHI can deal with a variety of polymers; linear polymer, branched polymers with any topology, copolymers with any monomer sequences (block, random, tapered-random) and the polymers grafted on a solid surface. SUSHI can be used to study the surface modification caused by polymer grafting or polymer adsorption, and the self-assembly of block polymers (micellar formation). Hydrodynamic effects can be treated. Parallel simulation based on GPGPU and MPI is possible.
Examples of applications
- - Micro phase separation of polymer blends
- - Interfacial tension of polymer blends
- - Micelle and critical micellar concentration
- - Polymer brush on a solid surface
- - Polymer adsorptions to a solid surface
- - Polymer thin film on a solid surface
- - Reaction-induced phase separations
