Interdisciplinary Research

New concepts are often birthed in the research laboratory with the potential to generate game-changing, disruptive technologies that affect new generations of products, ranging from microelectronic sensors and communication devices, to energy harvesting systems, to mobile devices for energy conversion and storage, to sustainable transportation systems. Novel methodologies and interdisciplinary modes of collaboration to accelerate the pace of evaluating and translating these technologies into industry practice are key ingredients that play into Georgia Tech’s strengths in fundamental research and industry-relevant development.

Data Science & Informatics for Materials

Through the Center for Materials Design Development and Deployment (MD3), the Georgia Institute of Technology has established the first university-industry collaborative research center in the nation focused solely on materials data science and enabled by a robust cyber infrastructure, e-collaboration platforms, and query -able persistent data warehousing. MD3 also serves as an attractor for industry and startups working at the intersection of materials discovery, development and big data at the new, campus adjacent HPC facility. MD3 and its partners will also establish the first comprehensive materials e-innovation ecosystem.

Shared Resources Initiatives @ IMaT

Centralized materials user facilities on the Georgia Tech campus support a broad range of fabrication and characterization activities. These include materials fabrication within the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN), scanning and transmission electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and a broad range of tools in the joint IMat-IEN Materials Characterization Facility (MCF), and mechanical testing within the Mechanical Properties Characterization Facility.
