Monte-carlo simulation of the counterion configuration in a charged star-branched diblock copolymer in solution.

The researches of the DRECAM are based both on physical and chemical experimentation and on significant theoretical developments. These developments and the comparison with the experiment allow the understanding of the phenomena and the model validation and support lot of research works. The theoretical activities are developed in the following areas : - theoretical chemistry (ab-initio calculations, molecular dynamics, relativistic effects in the f-elements) - physics of the irradiation (defect formation, energy transfer, ...) - physics of plasmas (high electronic density, ultra high laser energy) - solid state and mesoscopic physics - statistical and non-linear physics (chaos, non-linear processes, disordered matter, ...) - physical chemistry (aggregates, soft matter, solutions, ...) - reaction dynamics.

The study of chemical properties of molecular complexes in solution or at interfaces cannot ignore the quantum nature of electrons.
    In this field, the main goal relates to the description of physical phenomena involved in the solvation of an ion and we treat this problem performing classical molecular dynamics simulations of confined clusters.
    The trapping of molecules in a rare gas matrix is simulated using an original method based on molecular dynamics calculations.
Small aggregates possess many specific behaviors absent in the bulk phase.
