OLCF scientific computing liaison Gustav Jansen received honorable mention for the 2017 Hermann Kümmel Early Achievement Award in Many-Body Physics. The award recognizes “young physicists whose published work is a significant contribution to quantum many-body theory.”
A team led by Aurel Bulgac of the University of Washington has developed a novel model for capturing the real-time dynamics of nuclear fission without imposed constraints.
The US Department of Energy Office of Science has awarded nearly 1 billion processor hours to 22 projects at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility.
After their work simulating the calcium-48 nucleus, a team led by ORNL’s Gaute Hagen continued its work by moving to a larger, heavier, and more complex isotope—calcium-52—and the results surprised the researchers once again.
A team led by James Vary of Iowa State University leveraged Titan to simulate clusters of neutrons called “neutron drops” to understand their properties better.
Two prominent OLCF users were recently named UT-Battelle Corporate Fellows.
Members of the USQCD converged on ORNL April 29–30 to discuss their exploration of the strong nuclear force and the computing resources that will keep that exploration moving forward.
Nuclear physics experts from around the country gathered July 23–24 in Washington, D.C., to discuss the future of computational nuclear physics.
A research team from ORNL, the University of Tennessee, and the University of Oslo in Norway recently performed intense calculations of the oxygen-23 nucleus using ORNL’s Jaguar supercomputer.
An ORNL and University of Tennessee team has used the Department of Energy’s Jaguar supercomputer to calculate the number of isotopes allowed by the laws of physics. The team’s results are presented in the June 28 issue of the journal Nature.
