(127b) The Search for Novel Mesoscale Materials
- Conference: AIChE Annual Meeting
- Year: 2021
- Proceeding: 2021 Annual Meeting
- Group: Engineering Sciences and Fundamentals
- Time: Monday, November 8, 2021 - 12:42pm-12:54pm
In this talk, I will first discuss the unexpectedly diverse range of crystallographic structures that will support a photonic band gap, determined by more than 150,000 photonic band structure calculations that identify nearly 300 previously unstudied targets for photonic crystals(1). I will demonstrate avenues to predict the polyhedral nanoparticles that can cleanly self-assemble these targets and the implications, both good and bad, that small changes to nanoparticle shape have on the resulting crystalâs behavior (2-4).
Furthermore, the so-called machine learning revolution has bolstered the study of mesoscale self-assembly; these advanced statistical methods can accelerate simulations or aid in their analysis. In the final section of my talk, I will discuss my most recent work focused on developing machine learning methods for atomic systems(5,6). I will cover my efforts developing open-source software(7,8) and the employment of these methods for learning the behavior of hierarchical materials(9). The utility of these methods is in no way limited to the atomic scale; I will end with my plan for extending machine learning representations and techniques developed for atomic-scale simulations to mesoscale studies and the open questions that these techniques will address.
