The Department of Energy intends to invest $32 million to help research projects through the rapid development of new materials for the next four years. DOE said Wednesday that it will use high-performance computing facilities to create open-source software applications to support the design of functional materials for electronics, data storage, renewable energy and quantum information science. 

The initiative will cover seven projects from four universities and three national laboratories, including the University of Southern California and Argonne National Laboratory. The projects were selected through a competitive peer review process under the agency's Computational Materials Sciences program.

“These projects will harness America’s leadership in supercomputing to deliver a new generation of materials for energy and a wide range of other applications," said Paul Dabbar, undersecretary for science at DOE.
