QuesTek and Materials Design, Inc. Announce Collaboration Partnership

Evanston Il, Cambridge MA, and San Diego, CA – April 18, 2024

QuesTek International LLC, and Materials Design Inc. today announced the formation of a collaboration partnership.

QuesTek’s Materials by Design® technology is proven to reduce the development time and cost and increase the performance of novel materials. In its market space, QuesTek is the first and only provider to execute the full cycle from novel design to production, certification, and flight operations with proprietary materials, in a fraction of the time and cost of preceding methods. QuesTek technology is now directly available to end users in the market through its ICMD® SaaS offering.

Materials Design Inc. provides the market’s most comprehensive atomistic modeling and simulation software for materials science. The company’s MedeA Environment provides software, databases, builders, compute engines, and forcefield simulations that render extremely precise atomistic and nano-scale models, helping clients understand the engineering science of materials at the level of atomic interactions.

The partnership will connect MedeA Environment outputs to ICMD® models to provide common clients with the most accurate predictive and prescriptive materials designs and compositions available. Noteworthy solution targets include mitigating severe degradations, such as those causing hydrogen embrittlement in green energy alternatives and those related to tritium in emerging fusion energy applications.

According to QuesTek Chief Science Officer Dr. Greg Olson “The Materials Design toolset significantly expands the science foundation of QuesTek’s unique methodology of science-based engineering design, bringing novel materials to full deployment.”

Materials Design Chief Science Officer and Chair Dr. Erich Wimmer said “Accurate high-throughput computations and machine learning technologies have opened unprecedented opportunities to obtain the wealth of materials properties needed for integrated materials design. I am very excited about seeing the combination of the unique expertise and software capabilities of our companies creating even more value for our customers and for our society. ”
