Berkeley Lab’s SPOT Suite Transforms Beamline Science

August 18, 2014 Tags: CRD, Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), NERSC

Most synchrotron light sources have been operating on a manual grab-and-go data management model, but a recent deluge of data is quickly making this practice implausible. So scientists from the Advanced Light Source (ALS), CRD and NERSC teamed up to create SPOT Suite, and it is already transforming the way scientists run their experiments at the ALS. Read More »
