Pioneering Lifetime and Degradation Science and Technology Development

The SDLE Research Center at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is a world-class research center dedicated to data science and analytics applied to materials and energy science.

Established in 2011 by Professor Roger H French, the SDLE Center focuses on:

  • Lifetime and degradation science of solar photovoltaic (PV) materials, and other environmentally exposed, long lived (>25 years) technologies.
  • Accelerated laboratory and outdoor real-world exposures and evaluations of outdoor exposed technologies such as solar, led lighting and building envelope materials
  • Energy efficiency and virtual energy auditing of buildings, using engineering epidemiology and data analytics
  • Data-mining and statistical- and machine-learning applied to materials
  • Petabyte/Petaflop big data analytics applied to time-series, spectral and image datasets
  • Non-relational data warehousing and analytics environment for complex systems.
