The top ten advances in materials science

Creating a True Materials Revolution

Thomas Edison famously remarked that if he tried 10,000 experiments that failed, he didn't actually consider it a failure, but found 10,000 things that didn't work. That's true, but it's also incredibly tedious, time consuming and expensive. The new methods, however, have the potential to automate those 10,000 failures, which is creating a revolution in materials science. For example, at the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), a US government initiative to create the next generation of advanced batteries, the major challenge now is not so much to identify potential battery chemistries, but that the materials to make those chemistries work don't exist yet. Historically, that would have been an insurmountable problem, but not anymore.

"Using high performance computing simulations, materials genomes and other techniques that have  been developed over the last decade or so, we can often eliminate as much as 99% of the possibilities that won't wo…

The Birth of the Materials Project

In 2008, Kristin Persson's husband took a job in California, so she left Ceder's group at MIT and joined Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) as a research scientist. Yet, rather than mourn the loss of a key colleague, the team saw the move as an opportunity to shift their work into high gear.

"At MIT, we pretty much hacked everything together," Ceder explains. "It all worked, but it was a bit buggy and would have never scaled beyond our small team. At a National Lab, however, they had the resources to build it out properly and create a platform that could really drive things forward." So Persson hit the ground running, got a small grant and stitched together a team to combine the materials work with the high performance supercomputing done at the lab.

The Seeds of the Materials Revolution

In 2005, Gerd Cederwas a Professor of Materials Science at MIT working on computational methodsto predict new materials. Traditionally, materials scientists worked mostly through trial and error, working to identify materials that had properties that would be commercially valuable. Gerd was working to automate that process using sophisticated computer models that simulate the physics of materials.

Things took a turn when an executive at Duracell, then a division of Procter & Gamble, asked if Ceder could use the methods he was developing to explore possibilities on a large scale to discover and design new materials for alkaline batteries. So he put together a team of a half dozen "young guns" and formed a company to execute the vision. The first project went well and the team was able to patent a number of new materials that hadn't existed before. Then another company came calling, which led to another project and more after that. Yet despite the initial success, Ced…

Materials Science May Be the Most Important Technology of the Next Decade

Think of just about any major challenge we will have to face over the next decade and materials are at the center of it. To build a new clean energy future, we need more efficient solar panels, wind turbines and batteries. Manufacturers need new materials to create more advanced products. We also need to replace materials subject to supply disruptions, like rare earth elements.

Traditionally, developing new materials has been a slow, painstaking process. To find the properties they're looking for, researchers would often have to test hundreds--or even thousands--of materials one by one. That made materials research prohibitively expensive for most industries. Yet today, we're in the midst of a materials revolution. Scientists are using powerful simulation techniques, as well as sophisticated machine learning algorithms, to propel innovation forward at blazing speed and even point them toward possibilities they ha…

Metals and Alloys

Metals and alloys are materials that are usually exhausting, malleable, and have smart electrical and thermal conduction. Alloys are created by melting 2 or additional components together, at least one of them a metal. They need properties that improve those of the constituent components, such larger strength or resistance to corrosion Everybody is aware of what metal is; it is found in thousands of things that surround us every day. Once you begin to conserve some of these metal items, however, you discover that the substance is more sophisticated than it looks. Most things we have a tendency to call metals these days are more accurately known as alloys. True metals are pure elements, whereas alloys are blends of two or additional metals that are fusible together. Metals and alloys are straightforward to distinguish from nonmetals because they're usually shinier, heavier, and tougher than most materials and that they are glorious conductors of heat and electricity. Even so, visua…

Green Technologies

This technology reduces the environmental impact on building sectors. The demand for building materials is shifting towards environmentally preferable or green materials due to consumer demand. These technologies would either decrease environmental impact through the development of more environmentally sustainable materials and products, or even by the generation and conservation of resources such as energy and water.

Emerging Smart Materials

Polymeric materials assume a significant half in human life. Actually, our body is formed of parcel of polymers, e.g. Proteins, catalysts, and then forth. Different unremarkably happening polymers like wood, elastic, cowhide and silk are serving the mankind for a protracted time currently. Present day logical apparatuses altered the getting ready of polymers along these lines accessible designed polymers like valuable plastics, rubbers and fibre materials. Capacity of a country to tackle nature and its capability to adapt up to the difficulties postured by its controlled by its total information of materials and its capability to form and deliver them for various applications.

Biomaterials and Medical Devices

Bio-materials are vital to the development of various forefront medical devices and products together with biodegradable sutures, bone screws, pins, poles and plates, and scaffolds for convalescent bone, ligament and blood vessels. The third-generation bio-materials mix the restorable and bio-active property, with the goal of making materials that, once deep-rooted, can alter the body to heal itself whereas the second-generation bio-materials were designed to be restorable or bio-active. Biomaterials Conferences will be re-engineered into shaped or machined components, coatings, filaments, foams, and fabrics to be used in biomedical devices. These might consolidate heart valves, hip joint substitutions, dental implants, or contact lens. The biodegradable and bio-absorbable property of bio-materials created them to eliminate step by step from the body within the wake of fulfilling a function.
