Cross-Cutting Themes

We have several crosscutting themes that will be essential to achieve the Army's goal of virtual design and optimization of novel electronic materials and devices. These crosscutting themes are areas/methodologies that are not specific to projects within Areas A-C, but rather can be applied to several projects within the entire research realm. These themes include ab-initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations that will be used as a starting point for all materials within the MSME program, extending current state-of-the-art multiscale modeling tools (e.g. coarse-graining) to the next generation of computing and simulation capabilities, and validation and verification (V&V) and uncertainty quantification (UQ) of simulations, codes, and materials.
