May 4, 2016: Three members of the Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences staff talked to thousands of high school and middle school students at the National Science Bowl last week. They spoke about the wide-range of research being conducted at two of DOE’s most productive user facilities. Read More »
- Exascale and Beyond We're rethinking every aspect of scientific computing—hardware, software, algorithms, efficiency and networking—to address limits on processor speed, memory and energy consumption. The goal: more science per Watt.
- Data-Driven Science We develop tools and technologies and provide the critical networking and computer resources that help scientists turn enormous, widely shared, and complex data sets into discoveries.
- Scientific Complexity Engaging scientists in a holistic, team-based approach—from theory, observations and experiments to simulation and data analysis—is a grand challenge and goal of Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab.
May 2, 2016: The leading method for creating quantum bits, or qubits, currently involves exploiting the structural defects in diamonds. But using NERSC resources, University of Chicago researchers found that the same defect could be engineered in cheaper aluminum nitride. If confirmed by experiments, this could significantly reduce the cost of manufacturing quantum technologies. Read More »
April 22, 2016: Forty staff members from across the DOE national lab complex helped convey the labs’ contributions and achievements to Congressional members and staff April 20 during National Lab Science Day. Read More »
