A major goal of the Materials Genome Initiative is to provide a large amount of high quality data to the broader research community in a format that can accelerate the pace of materials research.
On this website, we give a few examples of the types of data that we will make available with funding from MGI.
To illustrate the type of data sets to be made available through the UW-Madison MGI effort, we have selected the data shown in Figure 2 of the MGI proposal (see Table 1 below). In Table 2 below, we illustrate the types of experimental data that will be obtained on optically poled organic glasses prepared by physical vapor deposition (PVD).
Table 1. Sample Data Table (Figure 2 of the Materials Genome Initiative proposal).
Table 2. Sample Data Table (illustrating the data to be obtained from one sample with MGI funding).
600 nm PVD
Temperature range = 200 K – 330 K
Deposition rate = 0.2 nm/s
488 nm illumination (10 mW/cm2) during deposition with light polarized along the y axis
Table 3. Sample Data Table (illustrating crystal growth inhibition of an organic glass due to polymer additives).
Bulk Crystal Growth Rates of Nifedipine with Various Polymer Additives at 1 wt%
Growth Rate Data at 30° C (Tg - 12° C) and 80C (Tg + 38° C)
To illustrate the type of data sets to be made available through the UW-Madison MGI effort, we have selected a simulation of trehalose, a disachharide useful in preservation of peptides for its anti-plastisizing properties. For details, please see our recent publication on "A molecular view of vapor-deposited glasses" [ DOI ].
To study different properties of such glasses, hundreds of samples were generated. In the following we have provided some data for different such samples that could be useful for further analysis of these samples.
