Challenge Team Abstract
Team Number: 61
School Name: Portales High School
Area of Science: Physics
Project Title: Particle Implantation into Ionic and Covalent Solids
This year's project for Portales team 61 is based upon the principles of particle implantation into ionic and covalent solids. In this experiment we will be shooting different particles (electrons, ions, protons, whole atoms, etc...) into lattices of various particles. By doing this, we hope to study the results of particle implantation into lattices pertaining to real life projects such as semi-conductor technology and various other fields of study.
The supercomputer is used in this project to keep track of all
inter-particle forces of all particles in the model experiment, which
includes the lattice itself and the particles being shot into the lattice.
