Center for Hierarchical Materials Design

CHiMaD Research

CHiMaD is demonstrating the power and potential of bringing together data science, computational approaches and stat-of-art experimetns to design materials ranging from cobalt alloys for bearing applications to polymers for photovoltaics. Our research efforts compass eight use-case groups and multiple tool development efforts:

  • Data Mining
  • Polymer Matrix Materials
  • Low-Dimensional Nanoelectronic Materials
  • Precipitation-Strengthened Alloys
  • In-situ Si-Composite Materials
  • Directed Self-Assembly of Block Co-polymers Films for Lithographic Applications
  • Soft Matter Design based on Charge Complexation
  • Organic Bulk Heterojunction Polymer Solar Cells

Please download the CHiMaD Annual Report: Year in Review 2014 to learn more about each use-case group.
