Computational Materials Science
We seek to accelerate the discovery of new materials by creating computational models based upon the theories of molecular dynamics or quantum mechanics that enable the prediction and modification of fundamental materials properties.
Our computational materials science researchers are global leaders in the field
Our computational materials science researchers at Duke are global leaders in this effort, and work in close collaboration with experimental colleagues.
Computational materials discovery at Duke focuses on electronic materials, solid-state engineering, solid-state physics, nanoscience and technology, optical properties of nanomaterials, advanced optics and thermodynamics of materials.
