What’s New in MedeA Version 2.18?

MedeA 2.18 provides a range of enhancements and new capabilities in MedeA® environment.

We would love to see you in Heidelberg, Germany for the 2015 MedeA Users' Group Meeting. The meeting provides an excellent opportunity to network with MedeA® users and share your work. Further, unparalleled access to our developers and the opportunity to provide direct feedback based on your experiences allows you to influence the future of MedeA®.

In 1959, in a world of decidedly macroscopic electronic devices, the physicist Richard Feynman famously announced that there was 'plenty of room at the bottom'.

More than half a century later, semiconductor manufacturers are increasingly confronting the physical realities of the nanoscale.

We are used to the macroscopic behavior of materials.

Hear from Paul Saxe, CEO of Materials Design®, how we understand ICME and turn it into reality,
based on a longstanding customer relationship with some of the major players in the field.

Materials Design® is proud to be silver sponsor and will answer your questions at our booth.
But don't take our word for it, talk to our customers attending this meeting as invited speakers.

Monday, May 11, 2015: 4:00 PM

Room 201B (Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center)
Dr. Clive Freeman , Materials Design, Inc., Angel Fire, NM
Dr. Erich Wimmer , Materials Design, SARL, Montrouge, France
Dr. Paul Saxe , Materials Design, Inc., Angel Fire, NM

Meet us on May 12th at Symposium N at EMRS2015 Spring meeting in Strasbourg and talk to us.

We report on recent investigations of the electronic properties of the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface using density functional theory as implemented in MedeA-VASP. In contrast to previous studies, which relied on semilocal functionals or the GGA+U method, we use a hybrid functional to determine the electronic structure.

This seminar is for industry specialists with its main focus on fluids, soft matter, porous materials and interfaces. We will share state-of-the-art studies in computational predictions of materials properties and process parameters for industrial applications such as oil & gas / refining, chemicals and biofuels.

Throughout the year Materials Design® scientists attend scientific meetings. Paul Saxe (the CEO of Materials Design, Inc.), Clive Freeman, and Phil Mages recently attended the 249th ACS National Meeting in Denver. The meeting ran from March 22 to March 27 and provided an opportunity to catch up with existing MedeA® users, to learn about the latest developments in computational methods employed in the simulation of chemical systems, and to spread the word about Materials Design®. Paul gave a talk on advances in thermoset and polymer-surface interaction modeling in the Polymer Modeling: Structure, Dynamics and Function session organized by Rebecca Locker and Gregory Rutledge (if you are interested in learning more about polymer modeling and/or Paul's presentation, please drop us a line at

This seminar addresses the growing importance of atomistic simulations in materials-related industrial R&D. It will provide an overview and assessment of current capabilities in this field and it will offer the opportunity to hear about the practical implementation in an industrial R&D organization.
