NERSC's Edison Supercomputer to Retire after Five Years of Service

May 9, 2019

NERSC’s Edison supercomputer opened for production use on January 14, 2014. Now, after more than five years of providing supercomputing capability to Department of Energy projects, the system will be retired on May 13, 2019. Read More »

Superfacility Framework Advances Photosynthesis Research

May 2, 2019

For more than a decade, a team of international researchers led by Berkeley Lab bioscientists has been studying Photosystem II, a protein complex in green plants, algae, and cyanobacteria that plays a crucial role in photosynthesis. They’re now moving more quickly toward an understanding of this three-billion-year-old biological system, thanks to an integrated superfacility framework established between LCLS, ESnet, and NERSC.

Envisioning the Future of Machine Learning and Data Analytics

April 15, 2019

Some 40 early and mid-career applied mathematicians from national labs across the country came together at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in early April to explore the big, unsolved challenges Department of Energy labs should tackle in the next 10 to 20 years. The gathering also sowed the seeds for future collaborations. Read More »

Searching for Photocathodes that Convert CO₂ into Fuels

April 8, 2019

CO2 is a promising solution to clean, low-cost, renewable energy, but we need more efficient photocathodes to convert CO2 into fuels. Berkeley Lab researchers and NERSC supercomputing resources helped sift through 70,000 candidate materials to ID some new ones. Read More »
