Ultra High-Throughput Design and Prototyping Technology for Ultra Advanced Materials Development

Project overview

Project period: FY2016 to FY2022
PL: MURAYAMA Norimitsu (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)
SPL: HAMAKAWA Satoshi (Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)

Japan has secured a large share of the global market for functional materials, and this sector is a source of Japan's industrial competitiveness. It would be ideal if Japan could maintain its top global position, but, given trends in patents, it can be seen that developing countries are pursuing active development in this area, so it is necessary for Japan to accelerate its research and development as well. In recent years, progress in computing has resulted in the widespread use of simulations and informatics for research and development in the field of materials both within and outside Japan. In particular, materials informatics has attracted attention as a new method that does not depend on conventional research and development methods even though research in this field is still in its infancy.

The goal of this project is to accelerate the creation and development of innovative functional materials by utilizing multi-scale simulations and other types of computational science on organic functional materials, creating a data group that associates the structure and function of materials for which there is currently a shortage, and fusing this with materials informatics. In addition to computational science, this project also involves the development of process technology that actually prototypes materials as well as measurement technology, for which observation has not been possible until now, to contribute to the enhancement of industrial competitiveness in the functional materials field.
