MAGICS: Materials Genome Innovation for Computational Software

The MAGICS center develops first-principles based computational synthesis software for the layered materials genome, encompassing two dimensional materials and layered heterostructures. Specifically, the center focuses on synergies between three research thrusts:
1. Atomistic description of two dimensional material synthesis and characterization
2. Validation of atomic processes and mechanisms using ultrafast pump-probe experiments
3. Distribution of software and computational and experimental data generated in the center and providing training in new software and methods to the wider materials science community in academia, national labs and industry.

The center leverages petascale computational resourced and state of the art layered material synthesis with ultrafast femtosecond x-ray laser validation experiments to provide insights into and accelerate manufacturing of the next-generation of functional layered materials.
