VP2 - Novel Materials Applications

Vertical Project 2, Novel Materials Applications, is devoted to the application of quantum simulations, enhanced sampling methods and materials informatics to the high-throughput design of materials of materials with novel properties, in the domain where techniques like density functional theory provide already predictive accuracy. Major objectives of VP2 are the development of novel materials for energy and the environment, information-and-communication technologies, and the characterization of the properties of organic crystals relevant to the electronics or pharmaceutical industry.
