The Inria-Nano-D team developing the Samson generic nanosystems design software package, which has been working out of MINATEC for more than a year now, has a number of new wins to report. In March the team secured a European Research Council Proof of Concept grant to assess the software’s market potential, and recently released version 0.5 of the tool. In June, the team is running its first Samson School in Aix-les-Bains.
Samson is used to analyze and design nanosystems of all types, and offers interactive simulation features. The software boasts an open architecture, which enables users to create and share modules—a key advantage over costly and non-customizable commercial software. The beta version, released in March 2015, has more than 600 academic and private-sector users worldwide.
