Supercomputing Raises Materials Science to New Heights

Dec 5, 2013 |

Materials science, also called materials engineering, is on the cusp of a new era, emboldened by advances in computational power and quantum mechanics. For some time now, manufacturers have used supercomputers to design better airplanes, cars and other equipment, but now scientists are using similar techniques to develop new materials from scratch. A recent article Read more…
