S3: Computational Design of Electronic Materials

 

Register for EMA 2015 today

 

Given the pressing requirements for new high-performance electronic materials to meet important application needs, computational methods are required to understand unusual phenomena and to design new classes of materials. Computationally exploring the properties of novel materials has the potential to mitigate the costs, risks and time involved in the preparation and testing of potentially useful materials, and could yield valuable insights into the fundamental factors underlying materials behavior. Moreover, such computational design efforts form the core of the U. S. White House Materials Genome Initiative. This symposium will bring together materials scientists and engineers from academia, industry, and national laboratories to discuss the current state-of-the-art (and future outlook) within various types of materials modeling and materials informatics efforts, aimed primarily at electronic materials.

 

Proposed Session Topics

  • Inorganic, organic and organic-inorganic hybrid electronic and functional materials
  • Low-dimensional systems (quantum dots, nanowires, 2D crystals, and related systems)
  • Novel phenomena at interfaces; Interface driven functional materials
  • Defects in electronic materials
  • Theoretical challenges and development to accurate description of defects and interface properties
  • Emerging strategies for searching, designing and discovering new electronic materials
  • High throughput data generation and screening via first principles and other computations
  • Modeling at different (and across) scales (first principles, force fields, phase field, etc.)
