Oak Ridge leads DOE INCITE effort in 2008
Date:1/17/2008

current project is complete, Jaguars 31,000 processing cores will be capable of 275 trillion calculations a second, or 275 teraflopsa fourfold increase over a year ago.

Jaguars increased processing power is reflected in the size of the allocations being made available to individual projects. Whereas the largest allocation in 2007 was 10 million processor hours, 2008 will see six separate projects with at least 10 million hours, and the largest allocation is 18 million processor hours. The 2008 INCITE program and the large allocations enabled by Oak Ridges NCCS Leadership Computing Facility will give researchers an invaluable opportunity to continue pushing the boundaries of knowledge, and their efforts promise to improve both our lives and our understanding of the world we live in.

The 2008 INCITE awards adds to the impressive roster of scientific achievements at ORNL made possible by the unique DOE leadership computing capabilities at the NCCS.

In 2007, astrophysicists from ORNL and North Carolina State University released the first explanation for the spin of a pulsar that matches observation, publishing their findings in the preeminent journal Nature. In that same month, a team of chemists from ORNL and the University of Tennessee released findings that advance our knowledge of adsorption, the molecular process responsible for catalytic converters, chemical sensors, and thousands of other products. Their work appeared as the cover story in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Later in the year, National Geographic featured the work of NCCS users from the University of CaliforniaSanta Cruz and the University of Arizona in a discussion of the exploding stars known as supernovas.

Also, a team of fusion researchers from ORNL, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and other institutions verified the effectiveness of the heating mechanism that will be used in the multinational ITER reactor. NCCS users are vi
