New Publications on Emerging Materials

Emerging materials are essential to advance defense, healthcare, clean energy, and economic security, however the time to bring a new material to market after initial discovery can take 20 or more years. Accelerating the entry of new materials to industry is a critical 21st century challenge that will require a multidisciplinary approach that spans traditional materials research, computation, and data sciences.

IMat leadership has been active in publishing position pieces and novel contributions to next generation materials data science and design approaches in early 2019. We invite you to explore these new topics below:

  • A Bayesian Framework For Materials Knowledge Systems: Surya R. Kalidindi, MRS Communications
    https://doi.org/10.1557/mrc.2019.56
  • Multifidelity Information Fusion with Machine Learning: A Case Study of Dopant Formation Energies in Hafnia: Rohit Batra, Ghanshyam Pilania, Blas P. Uberuaga, and Rampi Ramprasad, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces Article ASAP
    https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsami.9b02174
  • Systems Approaches to Materials Design: Past, Present, and Future: Raymundo Arróyave, David L. McDowell, Annual Review of Materials Research
    https:/doi.org/10.1146/annurev-matsci-070218-125955

Research Ramp-Up Phase 1 | How to Gain Access to IMaT Core Facilities

We are eager to have you return to the facility starting June 18, per Georgia Tech’s research ramp-up plan. However, there are a few items you will have to complete before your work can commence. We encourage you to begin to address these items sooner rather than later.

Watch the “Returning Safely to Your Lab” videos. You may access this training on the OSP site: https://training.osp.gatech.edu/.

Note: All returning internal and external researchers, even those who have been approved for research resumption, must complete these requirements. The following links can be used as references for more information on Georgia Tech’s research ramp-up plan and the EH&S COVID-19 Training.

Future Workforce for Materials Innovation

Our researchers of tomorrow will need to expand the boundaries of traditional materials disciplines.

Accelerating Discovery & Development

Using interdisciplinary collaboration and strategic partnerships is critical. FLAMEL established new models to this end.

Shared Resources Initiatives

The materials community has access to an extensive array of both centralized and distributed research facilities across campus, including the Materials Characterization Facility.

E-Collaboration, Data Sciences & Informatics

IMat links research teams and enhances access of data. MATIN is one way of making this possible.
