Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, & Discovery of Interface Materials

An NSF Materials Innovation Platform


User_Program_imageMany PARADIM facilities are available for use immediately. Others will be brought on-line during year 2 of the program, beginning in 2017.

All access to PARADIM resources are via an externally reviewed proposal process. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis.

We are currently accepting proposals for remote access to the simulation/computation facilities and hands on access to the growth and characterization facilities. Later, a process will be developed for user access to developed software, experimental data, archival samples, and “standard” characterized samples.

PARADIM facilities are exclusively for the growth and characterization of novel electronic materials and interfaces. Furthermore, the PARADIM is a materials-by-design platform. Successful user proposals are expected to make full use of the iterative design loops involving the three aspects of PARADIM resources–Growth, Characterization, and Simulation—to develop and understand new interface electronic materials.
