    Materials Discovery

    It can take over 10 years to come up with new materials. At IBM Research, we’re looking to accelerate the discovery process using new AI methods, robotics, the hybrid cloud, and quantum computers. Our goal is to unlock new properties and materials to address global challenges in years not decades.

    Our work



    Accelerator Technologies

    We're developing technological solutions to assist subject matter experts with their scientific workflows by enabling the Human-AI co-creation process.


    Featured work

    Project Photoresist

    We used our accelerated discovery process to identify and synthesize a novel photoacid generator in less than a year — far quicker than it usually takes.
