We believe that new materials will unlock the most important growth frontier of the 21st century and are critical to addressing climate change, the energy transition, and the future of computing.

We bring deep domain expertise from a range of scientific and business backgrounds, and we live at the intersection of materials science, applied AI, software engineering, and data products.

We created Atomic Data Sciences in order to close the gap between in-silico and in-vivo advanced materials by elevating real-world materials characterization data. Our goal is to reduce the decades-long lead times currently needed to bring new advanced materials to market.

We're materials scientists, data scientists, and technologists brought together by a shared vision to boost real-world advanced materials development using the toolsets of modern computing.
