All Facilities Open for Users


We are in the midst of a data revolution. The confluence of information rich measurement techniques and computing capabilities to store and analyze information are rapidly changing the face of how data is collected, analyzed, and interpreted. The Materials Genome Initiative and the NSF Materials Innovation Platforms are designed to tap into this revolution as applied to materials.


The PARADIM Data Collective (PDC) combines sustainable data-science tools with collaborative data sharing in the Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials (PARADIM) an NSF-funded Materials Innovation Platform. PDC's structure and tools are being developed to meet the needs of the Materials Domain and are built on the scalable SciServer Infrastructure for Big Data. Our focus is on bringing the analysis to the data!


The PDC addresses Materials Genome Initiative strategic goals to facilitate access to materials data; to build data-science skills in the materials domain; and to create tools that help materials scientists link experiments, computation, and theory.
