April 23, 2014: Simulations run on NERSC's Edison system show how overcoming ion instabilities in hot plasma can boost a tokamak reactor’s energy output. Read More »
- Extreme Data 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.
- Energy Efficient Computing More science per Watt. That's the guiding principle as we rearchitect every aspect of scientific computing—from hardware and software, to algorithms, networking and data center operations.
- Science Engagement 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.
April 18, 2014: Albany High School students pose with their Job Shadow Day mentors. For the sixth consecutive year, researchers across Berkeley Lab hosted 12 juniors from Albany High School in conjunction with the school’s annual… Read More »
April 17, 2014: Astronomers have made the most accurate calculation yet of the expansion rate of the young Universe with help from supercomputers at NERSC. Their findings could help uncover the nature of dark energy, the mysterious, repulsive force that pervades our universe causing it to expand at an accelerating rate. Read More »
