About the Course

This course is an introduction to high-throughput experimental methods that accelerate the discovery and development of new materials. It is well recognized that the discovery of new materials is the key to solving many technological problems faced by industry and society. These problems include energy production and utilization, carbon capture, tissue engineering, and sustainable materials production, among many others. This course will introduce the learner to a remarkable new approach to materials discovery and characterization: high-throughput materials development (HTMD). Engineers and scientists working in industry, academic or government will benefit from this course by developing an understanding of how to apply one element of HTMD, high-throughput experimental methods, to real-world materials discovery and characterization problems. Internationally leading faculty experts will provide a historical perspective on HTMD, describe preparation of ‘library’ samples that cover hundreds or thousands of compositions, explain techniques for characterizing the library to determine the structure and various properties including optical, electronic, mechanical, chemical, thermal, and others. Case studies in energy, transportation, and biotechnology are provided to illustrate methodologies for metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. The Georgia Tech Institute for Materials (IMat) developed this course in order to introduce a broad audience to the essential elements of the Materials Genome Initiative. Other courses will be offered by Georgia Tech through Coursera to concentrate on integrating (i) high-throughput experimentation with (ii) modeling and simulation and (iii) materials data sciences and informatics. After completing this course, learners will be able to • Identify key events in the development of High-Throughput Materials Development (HTMD) • Communicate the benefits of HTMDwithin your organization. • Explain what is meant by high throughput methods (both computational and experimental), and their merits for materials discovery/development. • Summarize the principles and methods of high throughput creation/processing of material libraries (samples that contain 100s to 1000s of smaller samples). • State the principles and methods for high-throughput characterization of structure. • State the principles and methods for high throughput property measurements. • Identify when high-throughput screening (HTS) will be valuable to a materials discovery effort. • Select an appropriate HTS method for a property measurement of interest. • Identify companies and organizations working in this field and use this knowledge to select appropriate partners for design and implementation of HTS efforts. • Apply principles of experimental design, library synthesis and screening to solve a materials design challenge. • Conceive complete high-throughput strategies to obtain processing-structure-property (PSP) relationships for materials design and discovery....

It was fabulous course. In spite of being educated in Materials Science, I have learnt a lot about some remarkable new aspect of my major. I hope it will continue.

I appreciate it .

The course is covering application of HTMD in a broad range of materials.

I have already suggested the course to a friend who came back happy. We both surprised by the very efficient approach of HTMD into materials research.

You need to have a solid background in materials science and metallurgy to understand the basic concepts of the course.

Some references studied high number of samples in a very short time scale that is a surprise in materials science. However, some references are out dated.

Some of the questions are written in improper and confusing English, and make the assessments needlessly difficult. More effort and time is needed to crack the quizzes than on actually learning the material. Modification of the quizzes will save a lot of time of the students who need to learn more.

I believe, if the course leaders were looking into HTMD from Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, they were delivering the course in a more efficient way. This can be an approach to the future courses.

So, I believe the course needs to be updated both in term of content and the questions, despite the fact that is fruitful and provides an insightful approach to HTMD.

An excellent course, that enables the reader to understand deeply on experimentation, advanced characterization methods, and also structure-property-processing-performance relationships. I sincerely express my gratitude to all the course instructors for their wonderful teaching. Thank you, Team Georgia Tech.

Fue un excelente curso, ni fácil ni excesivamente complicado. Es información muy variada de distintos campos de los materiales, pero dan una muy buena idea de lo que se hace alrededor de este tema en muchos lados.

Extremely comprehensive scope. Very wide field of study. Touches nearly every branch of materials and physical science. A wonderful synthesis. Some parts like contact mechanics and principal component analysis requires mentioning of prerequisite backgrounds. This course is not a came-saw-conquered type course. Long-term commitment is required.
