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 »

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.

The Mystery of the Star That Wouldn’t Die

November 8, 2017

Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley scientists were part of a team that helped to decipher one of the most bizarre spectacles ever seen in the night sky: A supernova that refused to stop shining, remaining bright far longer than an ordinary stellar explosion. What caused the event is puzzling. Read More »

Students Turn Summer Research into SC17 Research Poster

November 7, 2017

Instead of going on vacation last summer, recent computer science graduates Tom Corcoran and Rafael Zamora went to work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. They were invited to stay on at the lab because of their advanced work at the intersection of protein classification and machine learning. Their project also got them an invitation to present their work at the 2017 Supercomputing Conference in Denver. At the conference, to be held November 12-17, the two will present a poster… Read More »
