CMS provides an Insight into the Development of New Materials.
Computational Materials Science (CMS) is one of R&D tools as like experimental science for understanding the nature based on the laws of nature. But CMS imitates the nature as a simple model and simulate the nature with equations on the computer systems.
Using the simple model systems, CMS can find key factors for developing new materials of desired properties from the complex experimental effects.
The experimental R&D has been usually conducted as the Edisonian method, trial and error. However, experimentally exploring large numbers of combinations of materials is time-consuming and economically expensive. Therefore, Computational approaches become very importance tools for researchers.
CMS can provide an insight and shortcut for developing new materials by guiding experiments in promising direction, and recently, CMS draws much attentions in the several R&D fields.
