NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

SPOT Suite Transforms Beamline Science

Most light sources have been operating on a manual grab-and-go data management model, but a recent data deluge is quickly making this practice implausible. So Berkeley Lab scientists teamed up to create SPOT Suite. » Read More

Take a "Scroll" Down Memory Lane

Visit our new 40th anniversary timeline. Find out what Disney movie was filmed at NERSC; take a tour of the machine room of the 1990s; uncover staff's 1983 holiday wishlist (hint: some things don't change), and more. » Read More

Hot Plasma Partial to Bootstrap Current

Calculations run at NERSC shed light on a plasma behavior known as the self-generated current, which could help reduce fusion reactor costs. » Read More

'Thirsty' Metals Could Increase Battery Lifetimes

Using supercomputing resources at NERSC, researchers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have demonstrated how to stabilize aluminum, calcium and magnesium ions, which they say could double or triple the amount of charge that can be stored in a battery. » Read More
