The world has seen an enormous increase in computing power. Today, however, semiconductor transistors face enormous difficulties. The future of electronic devices is likely to be established on dynamic, adaptive materials which exist in multiple states. Entirely new switching paradigms, along with a new generation of electronic materials that enable them, will be needed. The goal of this project is to accelerate the design and discovery of compounds that undergo electronic metal-insulator transitions (MITs) and control the conducting or insulating state by structural design at the atomic scale -a grand challenge in materials research.
