Dane Morgan is featured in a June 2016, College of Engineering story about Informatics Skunkworks.
University of Wisconsin—Madison engineers recently used powerful computers to quickly and accurately develop the world’s largest computed database of information about an important materials-mixing process called diffusion.
Led by Dane Morgan, Harvey D. Spangler Professor in Materials Science and Engineering at UW–Madison, the researchers published details of their advance July 19 in the journal Scientific Data. They also made the entire database freely available online, along with an online application to easily search and visualize the data and a utility called the Materials Simulation Toolkit (MAST) for engineers across the globe to access and use in their own materials design applications.
Dane Morgan teams with John Booske to identify a promising candidate compound that could be used in next-generation vacuum electronic devices.
