Working with Israel’s leading NanoTech lab to make data available to its researchers, the MZ team took five years of experimental raw data and made it FAIR (Findable, Interoperable, Accessible, and Re-usable).
One hypothesis is that rust can be fabricated to turn sunlight into electricity. Using the newly structured experimental data, the first attempt was to use ML (Machine Learning) and predict how to fabricate the optimal rust. The second attempt combined previous results, teaching the algorithm to find the optimal results on its own.
Based on the new recommendation results, the outcome was x5 greater than the previous 5 years, and with a higher reproducibility – all data was stored, organized and accessible for any future research.
A production line with many different processes, batch runs, and material properties to analyze is difficult to manage.
The products of the production line need to meet the strictest standards from the FDA, and efforts are being made towards minimizing the cost of products manufactured which don’t meet FDA standards and need to be disposed of.
The materials lifecycle management and advanced analytics practice designed, can alert the management of errors early on in the production line, and save the cost of production steps that result in products that don’t meet the requirements.
AI4QD is an EU funded bilateral agreement consortium. Materials Zone (MZ), Glass to Power (G2P), and IIT focused on the integration of luminescent nanocrystals in photovoltaic windows. The G2P team recently achieved an optical efficiency record of 6.8 percent and exceeded all their previous records.
Turning windows into solar panels, our platform is applying machine learning (ML) algorithms and utilizing an online notebook management tool, to the research on colloidal nano-materials and their applications.
The interoperable data targets nano-crystal structures, highly luminescent quantum dots, and LED and PV devices.
MZ’s interfaces exploit large databases and suggest intelligent protocols for the synthesis of novel and improved crystals that are suitable for applications in the field of optoelectronics.
The experimental data generated by the metrology tools at our undisclosed R&D institute were under-exploited, with confidentiality constraints and complex diverse measurement report formats needing to be managed.
To overcome these limitations, the client joint hosted the experimental data and secured them by managing the confidentiality levels and visualizing the results in real-time to laboratories around the globe.
A database dedicated to the storage of data was setup, followed by a bespoke graphical user interface allowing access to the data. Files could also be exported and the interoperable visualizations demonstrated as a variety of chart types, wafer maps, histograms, and correlation plots.
"The Alerts and Alarms System, designed in a joint effort between Ethicon Biosurgery and MZ, is detecting failures in production lines at an early stage and preventing failed batches."
"MZ’s custom app allows our research group to instantly calculate the photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY) of various materials from spectra data and publish both the spectra and the calculation to the platform."
"Materials Zone provides me easy to use and efficient tools to collect, manage, analyze, and share my research data effectively."
