2018/01/09: Our lab receives funding to propel research from lab to market
We are honored to receive funding to help bridge our technology from the lab to market. We are honored to have been selected as one of the 4 labs. This is certainly a move that shows that our computational lab can be useful to save resources, but specially, it is another building block in the road toward the fourth generation of industrial revolution and science.

2017/02/02: MRS Bulletin (Cambridge) featured our research work about designing new materials ab initio in Energy Focus.
Before hydrogen can be fully exploited in alternative and clean fuel systems, such as fuel-cell vehicles, these systems need a cost-effective, energy-efficient way to store and deliver the hydrogen at desirable temperature and pressure conditions. Now, researchers have proposed an inexpensive material design that appears able to store and deliver bulk hydrogen (H2) at an unprecedented rate... [html] [pdf]
