Services include training, telephone and on-line customer support, outsourced contract research and assistance with implementation, solutions consulting, integration and data migration.

Software for Computer Aided Nanodesign

Computer Aided Nanodesign (CAN) enables scientists to visualize and predict behavior at length scales of up to 100nm, the realm of nanotechnology. Accelrys’ state-of-the-art nanotechnology software tools, all offered in the Materials Studio® software environment, have a proven track record of enhancing nanotechnology R&D in a plethora of applications, such as nanoelectronics, devices, displays, coatings, drug delivery and nanocomposite materials. With the products in Materials Studio, researchers have access to advanced modelling and simulation tools via desktop computing.

Accelrys Nanotechnology Consortium

At Accelrys, we are making connections between the chemistry and physics of materials at the nanoscale level with the engineering and manufacturing world through CAN via our Nanotechnology Consortium. Launched in summer 2004, the Accelrys Nanotechnology Consortium aims to address the challenges of rational nanodesign by extending and creating software tools to enable the rational design of nanomaterials and nanodevices. Members of the Nanotechnology Consortium include industrial researchers, academic experts, and Accelrys scientists, who are focused on developing, validating, and applying simulation to a particular research area. Members receive software, the right to provide formal input into Accelrys product plans, access to regular meetings at which experiences and ideas are shared, and dedicated application support. The Consortium also offers early access to cutting edge technology.
