Dramatically transform the discovery of functional energy materials through multiple-property search, incorporation of metastable materials into predictive design, and the development of theory to guide materials synthesis.
Goal 1: Design and discover new energy materials Goal 2: Develop foundational tools Goal 3: Incorporate metastable materials Goal 4: Develop theory-guided Goal 5: Promote materials design to broader community
Introducing the Center for Next Generation of Materials Design
The Center for Next Generation of Materials Design —an Energy Frontier Research Center—
Dramatically transforming the predictive discovery and synthesis of novel functional energy materials, including metastable structures.
CNGMD will dramatically advance Materials Design
by bridging four critical scientific gaps:
Multiple-property design • Accuracy and relevance • Metastability • Synthesizability
