Supercomputing aids experiments in sorting out the hidden mechanics of magnetic field reconnection, a key factor in solar storms and fusion energy reactors.
An international team searches for optimal materials to use in windows that double as solar panels.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory is testing a ‘deep-learning supercomputer in a box’ as it looks ahead to machines that automatically find insights in data.
Chicago and Argonne researchers simulate quantum bits for easier engineering of quantum computers.
Using supercomputers, University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory scientists have predicted possible new qubits – the quantum analogue to classical computing’s 0 and 1 bit arrangement – built out of strained aluminum nitride. The team showed that certain newly developed qubits in silicon carbide have unusually long lifetimes.View full highlight »
