A team led by Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory’s C.S. Chang recently used the 27-petaflop Titan supercomputer to simulate a crucial transition phenomenon in MIT’s Alcator C-Mod tokamak, uncovering the basic physics behind the transition.
Two Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) partners received HPC Innovation Excellence awards from the International Data Corporation (IDC) for their research using OLCF computing resources.
Of particular importance to Bhattacharjee’s team is reconnection and shocks in systems where the plasma particles do not collide very often, both of which can serve as mechanisms for cosmic ray acceleration.
By adding a graphics processing unit (GPU) accelerator to the 16-core central processing unit (CPU) on each node, the OLCF substantially increased Titan’s computing capability, enabling INCITE researchers to reach unprecedented science achievements.
Titan allows advanced scientific applications to reach unprecedented speeds, enabling scientific breakthroughs faster than ever with only a marginal increase in power consumption.
