Combinatorial Materials Science
- Integrates the scientific fundamentals and interdisciplinary underpinnings required to develop and apply CombiSci concepts
- Discusses the development and use of CombiSci for the systematic and accelerated investigation of new phenomena and of the complex structure-function interplay in materials
- Covers the development of new library design strategies for materials processing and for high-throughput tools for rapid sampling
- Uses a unique, unified approach of applying combinatorial methods to unravel the non-linear structure-function relationships in diverse materials (both hard and soft), together with advances in informatics
