Virtual Materials Design

In recent years a number of experimental and theory groups at KIT joined forces to form an initiative to develop, validate and apply multiscale methods for virtual materials design. In this presentation I will summarize recent results regarding the structure property relations of metal organic frameworks [1,2], organic light emitting diodes [3–5] and lithium ion batteries [6] . We will discuss the impact of workflow technologies [7,8] towards the realization of materials acceleration platforms.
