A6: Dynamische Heterogenitäten in vergröberten und detaillierten Modellen für Flüssigkristalle und ionische Flüssigkeiten

Während die Verbindung zwischen den Längenskalen von Simulationsmodellen auf verschiedenen Vergröberungsebenen durch das Vergröberungsverfahren vorgegeben wird, ist die Verbindung zwischen den Zeitskalen a priori nicht bekannt. In dem Projekt A6 bearbeiten wir dieses Problem anhand von zwei Systemen, in denen es ein Spektrum von charakteristischen Zeitskalen gibt, nämlich smektische Flüssigkristalle und ionische Flüssigkeiten. Wir verwenden dynamische Reskalierung und Markov State Modellierung (MSM), um die kinetischen Eigenschaften der vergröberten Modelle zu analysieren. Mit Hilfe eines neuentwickelten Konzeptes von gewichteten MSM identifizieren wir die Ursachen kinetischer Diskrepanzen. Dieses Konzept soll verwendet werden, um vergröberte Kraftfelder mit Blick auf Kinetik und Übergangsbarrieren zu optimieren.

Coarse-grained (CG) conformational surface hopping (SH) adapts the concept of multisurface dynamics, initially developed to describe electronic transitions in chemical reactions, to accurately describe classical molecular dynamics at a reduced level. The SH scheme couples distinct conformational basins (states), each described by its own force field (surface), resulting in a significant improvement of the approximation to the many-body potential of mean force [T. Bereau and J. F. Rudzinski, Phys. Rev. Lett. 121, 256002 (2018)]. The present study first describes CG SH in more detail, through both a toy model and a three-bead model of hexane. We further extend the methodology to non-bonded interactions and report its impact on liquid properties. Finally, we investigate the transferability of the surfaces to distinct systems and thermodynamic state points, through a simple tuning of the state probabilities. In particular, applications to variations in temperature and chemical composition show good agreement with reference atomistic calculations, introducing a promising “weak-transferability regime,” where CG force fields can be shared across thermodynamic and chemical neighborhoods.

Soft matter embodies a wide range of materials, which all share the common characteristics of weak interaction energies determining their supramolecular structure. This complicates structure-property predictions and hampers the direct application of data-driven approaches to their modeling. We present several aspects in which these methods play a role in designing soft-matter materials: drug design as well as information-driven computer simulations, e.g., histogram reweighting. We also discuss recent examples of rational design of soft-matter materials fostered by physical insight and assisted by data-driven approaches. We foresee the combination of data-driven and physical approaches a promising strategy to move the field forward.
