UT Physicists to Work on Next Generation of ORNL Super Computer

When the next generation of high performance computing comes to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, UT’s physicists will be working on the first projects that put its power to work. Summit, the third in the evolution of ORNL’s supercomputers, is set to come online in 2018. Descended from Jaguar and most recently Titan, it will ramp up the current performance level by at least a factor of five.

Physics Professor Thomas Papenbrock is working with ORNL’s Gaute Hagen, the project’s principal investigator and also an adjunct member of UT’s physics faculty, and postdoc Gustav Jansen on NUCCOR, or Nuclear Coupled Cluster Oak Ridge. Read more on the Department of Physics and Astronomy’s website.
