NOvA Sees Strong Evidence for Antineutrino Oscillation

Using NERSC's Cori and Fermilab's HEPCloud program, the NOvA neutrino experiment performed the largest-scale analysis ever to support the recent evidence of antineutrino oscillation, a phenomenon that may hold clues to how our universe evolved. » Read More

Simulating Impact of a Major Quake

A team of Berkeley Lab and LLNL researchers is leveraging powerful supercomputers at NERSC to portray the impact of high-frequency ground motion on thousands of representative different-sized buildings spread out across the California region. » Read More

Science Search

Science Search, a web-based search engine for scientific data is currently being developed by a team of researchers in Berkeley Lab's CRD and NERSC. The team is also developing innovative machine learning tools to automatically generate missing metadata tags for each file. » Read More

Self-Healing Cement Could Be a Boon to Oil & Gas Industry

Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have developed a unique cement that can repair itself in as little as a few hours; simulations run at NERSC helped them understand how it works. » Read More
