June issue out

Four Reviews and a Perspective discuss computational approaches for materials design in our June Insight. We also feature higher-order topological semimetals, hot plasmons and more.

Nature Materials is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.


  • The Biden administration proposed a huge boost in US federal research spending. Materials science, and many other fields, would win big if Congress agrees to the president’s sweeping agenda.

  • Suhas Eswarappa Prameela, K. T. Ramesh and Tim Weihs highlight how students and postdocs can develop their competencies and skills during research collaboration.

    Why it Matters
  • The next stage of the Graphene Flagship is marked by a €20 million investment for an experimental Pilot Line, promoting the transition of devices based on two-dimensional materials from research to industry.

  • Olga Malinkiewicz, founder of Saule Technologies, discusses her transition from academia to industry.

    Why it Matters
  • From the discovery of the Seebeck effect in the nineteenth century to its application in the latest space probes, thermoelectrics have carved out a niche for reliable applications.

Computational Materials Design

Computational Materials Design

Computation plays a vital role in the analysis of the materials that are needed to address current complex needs such as energy, information technology, or operations under extreme conditions.
