The ever-wider spectrum of important functionalities needed for developing modern technologies and infrastructure requires the design and fabrication of revolutionary materials with tailored properties. Recent advances in computing algorithm, the availability of ultra-high-speed computing, and the creation of high-throughput experimental tools help accelerate functional materials discovery by iterative techniques coupling theory and experiments. At the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, new approaches have been developed to identify, understand and develop new materials for solar energy conversion. This presentation will highlight key results on functional materials for photovoltaics and water splitting, obtained through the coupling of theory, experiment, and characterizations. Materials development for concentrated solar power will also be presented.
