We are pleased to send you the 12th issue of the Industrial Newsletter of NCCR MARVEL, the Swiss Center on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
In this edition, you can read about the advantages of common interfaces for workflows that automatically compute material properties, and get acquainted with the OPTIMADE API, which enables seamless access and interoperability across materials databases. You can also learn how newly identified R-2 2D material may show promise in the development of spin-layer-locking spinFETs. Furthermore, read about how the first-ever rare earth nickelate single crystals have been grown, leading to the first experimental evidence supporting the multiferroicity predicted in these materials. Finally, learn about the development of a machine-learning model that can predict a compound’s oxidation state.
We are also excited to announce the brand new Scientific Computing, Theory, and Data research division at the Paul Scherrer Institute, established in collaboration with MARVEL and EPFL.
The #NCCRWomen campaign has been proposing weekly portraits showing how women in Swiss research are changing the world, and MARVEL be featured next week! Do not miss the video portraits of 5 women researchers in MARVEL, which will be released every day, starting September 27.
We can already announce the upcoming Distinguished Lecture by John Perdew (Temple University) on November 15 – with other exciting lectures and other events to be unveiled soon on the MARVEL website. Mark your calendars!
