Using the Titan supercomputer, researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) collaborated with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), and other institutions to simulate—for the first time—atomic-level magnetic properties in regions of a real nanoparticle based on experimental data. The results have been published in Nature.
