Accelrys Nanotechnology Consortium Delivers New Multi-scale Computer Aided Nanodesign Software Tools and Adds New Members

San Diego, CA | Posted on July 9th, 2007

Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACCL) a leader in Computer Aided Nanodesign™ (CAN), announced the release of QMERA, the latest software solution developed by the Accelrys Nanotechnology Consortium. QMERA is a multi-scale method that enables users to include quantum mechanical and molecular mechanic methods (QMMM) simultaneously through a hybrid simulation approach. QMERA will be commercially available to members of the Nanotechnology Consortium as part of Materials Studio 4.2, expected to be released in July 2007.

The Nanotechnology Consortium, launched in 2004, develops and commercializes innovative science that helps researchers investigate complex models of nanostructures and devices. The success of the Nanotechnology Consortium is not only measured by its 29 members, but by the amount of new software solutions it has developed to meet customers' needs. In addition to QMERA, Nanotechnology Consortium development efforts have resulted in software included in Materials Studio 3.2, 4.0 and 4.1. The software includes ONETEP, a true linear scaling quantum mechanics program and GULP, an advanced force field package for calculating a wide range of materials properties.

Accelrys has also added new members to the Nanotechnology Consortium. The new members include the National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) in Thailand, and DENSO Corporation.

Dr. Noppawan Tanpipat, Deputy Executive Director, NANOTEC, said, "Here at NANOTEC we have recently launched a new initiative to introduce and integrate an advanced platform for nanoscale simulations into our Research Development Design and Engineering process. Computer Aided Nanodesign fits well within our model with the continuum span from discovery to development and with real world applications focused at the nanoscale."

Julian Gale, Professor at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia, and Consortium Advisor and author of GULP, said, "The Nanotechnology Consortium is a great example of global collaboration successfully driving forward the computational tools needed for nanomaterials research. I am very pleased about the growth of the Membership, which clearly demonstrates the strength of and need for this level of nanotechnology research."

The Nanotechnology Consortium contributes to Accelrys' ability to provide Scientific Business Intelligence solutions across the full spectrum of a company's R&D organization by enhancing the existing portfolio of multi-scale tools to connect adjoining technologies.

Following on the success of Phase I of the Nanotechnology Consortium, Accelrys is planning to launch Phase II later this year. For more information visit http://www.accelrys.com/materials/nano/nano_consortium/
