105 Jordan Hall of Science

Developing any new technology comes with a wish list of new materials. We need one type of material to make a folding smartphone, and another to construct the body of a spacecraft. But how do we find such materials from the infinite possible combinations of chemical elements and their compounds? Learn about a new paradigm in materials discovery that allows us to find new materials using only our mind (and some help from computers).
