Over the past several years, the field of materials informatics has grown dramatically. Applications of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to materials science are now commonplace. As materials informatics has matured from a niche area of research into an established discipline, distinct frontiers of this discipline have come into focus, and best practices […]
Reproducibility in high-throughput density functional theory: a comparison of AFLOW, Materials Project, and OQMD
A central challenge in high throughput density functional theory (HT-DFT) calculations is selecting a combination of input parameters and post-processing techniques that can be used across all materials classes, while also managing accuracy-cost tradeoffs. To investigate the effects of these parameter choices, we consolidate three large HT-DFT databases: Automatic-FLOW (AFLOW), the Materials Project (MP), and […]
Single-Crystal Automated Refinement (SCAR): A Data-Driven Method for Determining Inorganic Structures
Single-crystal diffraction is one of the most common experimental techniques in chemistry for determining a crystal structure. However, the process of crystal structure determination and refinement is not always straightforward. Methods for simplifying and rationalizing the path to the most optimal crystal structure model have been incorporated into various data processing and crystal structure solution […]
Data‐driven glass/ceramic science research: Insights from the glass and ceramic and data science/informatics communities
Data‐driven science and technology have helped achieve meaningful technological advancements in areas such as materials/drug discovery and health care, but efforts to apply high‐end data science algorithms to the areas of glass and ceramics are still limited. Many glass and ceramic researchers are interested in enhancing their work by using more data and data analytics […]
The rapidly growing interest in machine learning (ML) for materials discovery has resulted in a large body of published work. However, only a small fraction of these publications includes confirmation of ML predictions, either via experiment or via physics-based simulations. In this review, we first identify the core components common to materials informatics discovery pipelines, […]
Machine-Learning Guided Quantum Chemical and Molecular Dynamics Calculations to Design Novel Hole-Conducting Organic Materials
Materials exhibiting higher mobilities than conventional organic semiconducting materials such as fullerenes and fused thiophenes are in high demand for applications such as printed electronics, organic solar cells, and image sensors. In order to discover new molecules that might show improved charge mobility, combined density functional theory (DFT) and molecular dynamics (MD) calculations were performed, […]
This data article presents a compilation of mechanical properties of 630 multi-principal element alloys (MPEAs). Built upon recently published MPEA databases, this article includes updated records from previous reviews (with minor error corrections) along with new data from articles that were published since 2019. The extracted properties include reported composition, processing method, microstructure, density, hardness, yield […]
Corrosion is an electrochemical phenomenon. It can occur via different modes of attack, each having its own mechanisms, and therefore there are multiple metrics for evaluating corrosion resistance. In corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs), the rate of localized corrosion can exceed that of uniform corrosion by orders of magnitude. Therefore, instead of uniform corrosion rate, more […]
