ORNL Creates Programming System for NVM Main Memory Systems

Non-volatile memory (NVM) is playing a more important role in the memory architectures of HPC systems as illustrated by recent deployments and procurements. Yet there exist neither standard language constructs nor portable programming systems that provide support for these types of emerging memory architectures. To address this issue, researchers at the Future Technologies Group at Oak Ridge...

An accelerated pipeline to open materials research

Using today's advanced microscopes, scientists are able to capture exponentially more information about the materials they study compared to a decade ago—in greater detail and in less time. While these new capabilities are a boon for researchers, helping to answer key questions that could lead to next-generation technologies, they also present a new problem: How to make effective use of all...

Energy-Efficient Reaction Drives ORNL Biofuel Conversion Technology

A new study from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory explains the mechanism behind a technology that converts bio-based ethanol into hydrocarbon blend-stocks for use as fossil fuel alternatives. Scientists have experimented for decades with a class of catalysts known as zeolites that transform alcohols such as ethanol into higher-grade hydrocarbons. As ORNL researchers...

First Round of 2015 ORNL/NCSA Hackathons Gets Underway

What good would a supercomputer be without its applications? As supercomputers inevitably scale to newer, more diversified architectures, so too must their applications. Building on the lauded success of last year’s  2014 inaugural hackathon , organizers from the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), the University of Illinois Coordinated Science Laboratory and ...
