Argonne sets stage for journal’s Materials Genome Initiative report
A video featuring former Argonne researcher Carolyn L. Phillips, and a preface by Phillips and Argonne Director Peter Littlewood, set the stage for an APL Materials special topic on the Materials Genome Initiative.
From clean energy technology to faster and smaller computers, emerging technologies are dependent on advanced materials. For most of human history, new materials have been developed through an exhaustive trial and error approach. However, materials science is now at a remarkable point where theory, computation, experiment, and data are connecting to each other in meaningful ways.
The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) is a U.S. federal investment in doubling the pace of advanced materials discovery, innovation, manufacture, and commercialization. In this video about the Materials Genome special topic published in APL Materials, leading researchers share real-world examples of materials science success stories, bring attention to their MGI research, and discuss how the MGI accelerates the design of advanced materials that will shape our future.
APL Materials, a publication of the American Institute of Physics, features original, experimental research on significant topical issues within the field of materials science. Its special topics reports focus on cutting-edge areas in materials science.
