AbstractNanomaterials that are multi-purpose and cost-effective will be highly desirable in next-generation nanotechnology applications. Over the past two decades, nanoscale self-assembly has been considered a promising means for engineering future nanomaterials, where the underlying structures are formed by the self-organization of building blocks, such as nanoparticles, colloids and block copolymers. Such bottom-up fabrication approaches have attracted interest from multiple disciplines including materials science, chemistry, physics, applied mathematics and computer science due to their practical importance and fundamental challenges. Central to the self-assembly techniques is to design the suitable assembling units, their interaction rules and assembly pathways. In this talk, I will present numerous examples to demonstrate how computer simulation has been a powerful tool for providing not only profound insights into the complex interplay between the building blocks’ geometry and their interactions, but also valuable predictions to inspire ongoing and future experiment.
