Berkeley Lab Projects Advance Running, Scheduling of Scientific Workflows on HPC Systems

December 4, 2017

Researchers are increasingly turning to high performance computing (HPC) systems to carry out scientific workflows, which are executed as a series of steps and programs to study complex problems. However, achieving this can require a number of time-consuming manual tasks by the user and doesn’t always make the most efficient use of the system. Recently, researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) released publicly available software… Read More »

High-Performance Computing Cuts Particle Collision Data Prep Time

November 28, 2017

A new approach to raw data reconstruction has potential to turn particle tracks into physics discoveries faster. And, Brookhaven National Laboratory researchers recently proved the concept with help from NERSC supercomputers & ESnet's high-speed network. Read More »


NERSC Resources Help Predict New Material for High-Power, High-Efficiency LEDs

November 22, 2017

Using predictive atomistic calculations and high-performance supercomputers at NERSC, University of Michigan researchers found that incorporating the element boron into the widely used InGaN (indium-gallium nitride) material can keep electrons from becoming too crowded in LEDs, making the material more efficient at producing light.
