Launched in 2015, and renewed in 2019, MICCoM develops and disseminates interoperable open source software, data, and validation procedures, enabling the community to predict properties of functional materials.
The Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM), headquartered at Argonne National Laboratory, develops and disseminates interoperable computational tools - open source software, data, simulation templates, and validation procedures - that enable simulations and predictions of properties of functional materials for energy conversion and of solid-state materials for quantum information science. The distinctive features of the center are:
- Development of interoperable codes for simulation of materials at multiple length and time scales
- Focus on heterogeneous materials, inclusive of defects, interfaces and building blocks
- Focus on spectroscopic and coherence properties
The Center is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences.
