Oak Ridge Lab: Researchers Use AI for Autonomous Discovery and Optimization of Materials

Researchers are developing ways to accelerate discovery by combining automated experiments, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing. A novel tool developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory that leverages those technologies has demonstrated that AI can influence materials synthesis and conduct associated experiments without human supervision. This autonomous materials synthesis tool uses pulsed laser deposition, or PLD, to deposit […]
