Clocking the Early Universe

In the quest to understand dark energy, astronomers have calculated the expansion rate of the Universe as it existed 10.8 billions years ago.


Lilliputian LEDs

Nanostructures half the breadth of a DNA strand could improve the efficiency of light emitting diodes and help solve the most daunting problem facing white LED lighting today: the green gap.


Climate Change Reduces Flood Risk

Researchers analyzed how human-induced climate change has affected recent flooding in Africa's Okavango Delta.


Petascale Post-Docs an HPC Success Story

The first post-doctoral research project centered at NERSC helped its participants advance their careers and boosted the state-of-the-art in HPC software applications.


Democratizing Science With High Speed Networks

For the first time, data collected and analyzed by a remote user of NCEM via ESnet has been published. As a result, many are optimistic about the future of remote microscopy for DOE supported science.

    Clocking the Early Universe

    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 »

    To Bridge LEDs’ Green Gap, Scientists Think Small…Really Small

    April 4, 2014: Nanostructures half the breadth of a DNA strand could improve the efficiency of light emitting diodes (LEDs), especially in the “green gap,” a portion of the spectrum where LED efficiency plunges, simulations at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have shown.
