A machine learning solution for designing materials with desired optical properties

A Machine Learning Solution for Designing Materials with Desired Optical Properties
Controlling light-matter interactions is central to a variety of important applications, such as quantum dots, which can be used as light emitters and sensors. Credit: PlasmaChem

Understanding how matter interacts with light—its optical properties—is critical in a myriad of energy and biomedical technologies, such as targeted drug delivery, quantum dots, fuel combustion, and cracking of biomass. But calculating these properties is computationally intensive, and the inverse problem—designing a structure with desired optical properties—is even harder.

Now Berkeley Lab scientists have developed a machine learning model that can be used for both problems—calculating optical properties of a known structure and, inversely, designing a structure with desired optical properties. Their study was published in Cell Reports Physical Science.

“Our model performs bi-directionally with high accuracy and its interpretation qualitatively recovers physics of how metal and dielectric materials interact with light,” said corresponding author Sean Lubner.

Lubner notes that understanding radiative properties

Technology Provides the Solution to Remote Work’s Biggest Challenge

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it threw a monkey wrench into the plans of small and midsize businesses (SMBs) already grappling with the concept of remote work. Some had been testing the waters; others were deeply immersed; but it’s become increasingly clear that all must now find ways to make remote work viable at scale. Technology is the key to getting there.

Among the challenges SMB leaders face are the nuts-and-bolts logistics of providing their employees with the equipment, IT support, and other resources they need and the increased security concerns that come with remote work. The more vexing problem is finding ways to replicate the important cultural elements of the office work environment so critical to maintaining engagement, productivity, and a positive company culture.

At the start of the pandemic, Everlaw, a cloud-native e-discovery firm, already had some of its team working remotely. Since the team was already using

How Can Impact Investment Become More Accessible? Unreasonable Believes It Found A Solution.

Impact investment has long suffered from the cliché that it is simply the less profitable version of mainstream investing. While there is a range of VC funds investing into impact startups with returns equal to or exceeding those of mainstream VC investments, there is still a clear gap in educating angel investors about the opportunity investing in impact startups can bring.

At the same time impact investing is, as large parts of the investment world, suffering from a diversity problem with only 13% of VC Partners being women according to Atomico and Diversity.VC and little representation of BAME groups.

What could be done to get a broader set of angel investors from diverse backgrounds involved in funding the startups solving some of the world’s largest societal problems?

Unreasonable Group’s CEO Daniel Epstein and their Head of Investment Pratibha Vuppuluri believe
