A center for advancing basic fundamental research on materials with a synergy of data-driven materials design and advanced measurement

2023.10.02 Update
Center for Basic Research on Materials (CBRM) is newly formed by researchers of Research Center for Advanced Measurement and Characterization (RCAMC) and Research and Services Division of Materials Data and Integrated System (MaDIS). We conduct basic research that is common and fundamental to various materials. Our goal is to strengthen materials innovation. Advanced materials characterization and data-driven materials design are our expertise.

about field

Advanced Materials Characterization Field

In the Advanced Materials Characterization Field, we will contribute to Material Innovation Strategy by promoting advanced measurement research that can analyze the wide range of structures that are responsible for the physical properties and functions of materials. By developing state-of-the-art material measurement and analysis technologies in collaboration with Material design field, we will build a base for advanced material analysis.

Deputy Managing Director Kazutaka MITSUISHI

Data-driven Materials Research Field

This field sets out to offer a paradigm for the materials R&D which leads the significant acceleration of R&D with integrating data science, computational science, theory and experiment. To this end, we will engage in active discussions with researchers inside and outside NIMS and develop data-driven methods from the perspectives of common materials issues, with applications ranging from data collection (and/or creation) to data utilisation. We will also develop high-throughput data collection techniques to support data-driven research and build a materials knowledge base to organically link various databases.
