MSCE group logoAt the Materials Simulation for Clean Energy (MSCE) Lab, we develop multi-scale simulations methods to design materials atom by atom. We screen materials chemistry by solving quantum mechanical equations to predict the properties that are difficult to measure experimentally. We predict the chemical-mechanical degradation of electrode; model electron and ion transport in complex materials and interfaces inside Li ion batteries and solid oxide fuel cells; and simulate how mechanical properties of porous polymer and light-weight metal change in solution and gas environment starting from atomic interaction. All of these materials are critically important for an energy efficient and sustainable transportation industry.
