Materials discovery and design from quantum mechanics-based computational approaches

Understanding novel physics in nanoscale materials is critical for the development of modern electronics technology.However, such delicate materials are difficult to manipulate and characterize experimentally because of their tiny size. This raises the conundrum of how to proceed forward quickly with exploration and subsequently design of properties.In principle, materials properties are determined by the electronic structure. Quantum mechanics based computational approaches are able to address fundamental electronic, optical and magnetic properties in such materials.This provides a powerful complement to the …

Investigating the mechanical properties of temperate, subtropical, and tropical fodder

There is strong, qualitative evidence that fodder crops produced in the tropics are 'tougher' and less nutritious than fodder crops produced in subtropical and temperate regions.However, tools that can quantify the mechanical properties of fodder crops, particularly those with direct relevance to feeding and nutrition, are lacking.
