Curtarolo's Group Wins MURI Competition, Grant

Friday, May 31, 2013

Prof. Stefano Curtarolo and his group have won the competition for the MURI topic#20 "Replacing Strategic Elements in DoD Materials"  for the proposal "Topological decompositions and spectral sampling algorithms for element substitution in critical technologies." Instead of discovering novel compounds, the group proposed to explore "mechanisms of phase decompositions" to reproduce functionalities instead of chemistry. Curtarolo is the PI on this new grant.
