Purdue University, our flagship university, is host to many centers for developing technology. In the 1960s-2000s, CINDAS and its related centers were at the leading edge. The following ighlights the activities of a center in Discovery Park at Purdue. is the premier place for computational nanotechnology research, education, and collaboration. The site hosts a rapidly growing collection of simulation tools for nanoscale phenomena that run in the cloud and are accessible through a web browser. In addition to simulations, nanoHUB provides online presentations, cutting-edge nanoHUB-U short courses, animations, teaching materials, and more. These resources help users learn about our simulation tools and about nanotechnology in general. Free accounts are available.

A good starting page for those new to the site or to nanotechnology is Materials science content is collected here:

The site offers researchers a venue to explore, collaborate, and publish content as well. Much of these collaborative efforts occur via workspaces, user groups, and projects. Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) is now automatically available for most nanoHUB tools, and adds powerful analytical and predictive capabilities for researchers. Jupyter Notebooks provide a new way to access nanoHUB simulation codes and create new Jupyter tools:
