New center to lead Purdue efforts in computational nanotechnology, materials and devices development
October 15, 2013
The devices and technologies of the future will only be as good as the materials used to make them - and that's part of the problem. A new Purdue University research center hopes it can be a leader in finding solutions.
The Purdue Center for Predictive Materials and Devices (c-PRIMED) and its focus on modeling for materials engineering dovetails with the national Materials Genome Initiative (MGI). Announced by President Barack Obama in 2011, this federal initiative will concentrate on developing methods to double the speed and halve the cost of creating new advanced materials.Read Full Story
