Today, on June 24th, 2013, we are releasing the results of more than 17,000 CPU years of calculations. These results comprise calculations on 2.3 million organic structures that are potential candidates for organic electronics applications. Such applications include organic solar cells, organic light-emitting diodes and organic field-effect transistors. The data that we are releasing to the public today is one of the largest collections of theoretical chemistry calculations in the world (over 400 TB of data from 150 million calculations and growing!).
The database that we launch today is designed to allow people around the world to quickly identify candidate materials displaying particular properties. On-demand access to these calculations in a database allows researchers to more effectively search for trends that may help design the next generation of high performance organic electronics materials.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm thank you to all of our participants on the IBM World Community Grid who donated computer time to make this monumental task possible! This project is a joint venture between researchers at Harvard and Stanford University, the IBM World Community Grid, and many companies that have donated software tools and computing resources.
