Introduction to High Throughput Materials Development

Open Online

Course Description

This course is an introduction to high-throughput experimental methods that accelerate the discovery and development of new materials. It is well recognized that the discovery of new materials is the key to solving many technological problems faced by industry and society. These problems include energy production and utilization, carbon capture, tissue engineering, and sustainable materials production, among many others.

This course will introduce the learner to a remarkable new approach to materials discovery and characterization: high-throughput materials development (HTMD). Engineers and scientists working in industry, academia, or government will benefit from this course by developing an understanding of how to apply one element of HTMD, high-throughput experimental methods, to real-world materials discovery and characterization problems. Internationally leading faculty experts will provide a historical perspective on HTMD, describe preparation of ‘library’ samples that cover hundreds or thousands of compositions, explain techniques for characterizing the library to determine the structure and various properties including optical, electronic, mechanical, chemical, thermal, and others. Case studies in energy, transportation, and biotechnology are provided to illustrate methodologies for metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites.

How You Will Benefit

Identify key events in the development of High-Throughput Materials Development (HTMD)

Communicate the benefits of HTMD within your organization Explain what is meant by high throughput methods (both computational and experimental), and their merits for materials discovery/development

Summarize the principles and methods of high throughput creation/processing of material libraries (samples that contain 100s to 1000s of smaller samples)

Conceive complete high-throughput strategies to obtain processing-structure-property (PSP) relationships for materials design and discovery

Apply principles of experimental design, library synthesis and screening to solve a materials design challenge

Select an appropriate HTS method for a property measurement of interest

State the principles and methods for high-throughput characterization of structure
