Tiny Zaps, Big Results

Laser research on materials in the tiny realm of nanotechnology can lead to very big benefits to society. Resources from National Science Foundation's eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) are providing key support to this type of work.

The Origins of Home

Astronomer Wladimir Lyra of California State University at Northridge says resources from the eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) are instrumental in his exploration of how Earth came to be. Listen to the podcast and read the Question and Answer with Lyra.

Polymer Potential

Supercomputing time on the NICS-managed Darter system and others was critical to a research project at the Massachusetts Institute of technology aimed at understanding the molecular dynamics of polymers with promising characteristics.
