In its 15th year, INCITE advances open science with supercomputer grants to 47 projects

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science announced allocations of supercomputer access to 47 science projects for 2020—awarding 60 percent of the available time on some of the nation’s most powerful supercomputers, with the ultimate goal of accelerating discovery and innovation. In 2020, 14 projects will run on Theta and 39 projects on Summit, where six of these projects will receive an allocation on both systems.

Newswise: Light-based 'tractor beam' assembles materials at the nanoscale

Light-based 'tractor beam' assembles materials at the nanoscale

University of Washington

Researchers have adapted optical tweezers, a light-based technology employed widely in biology, to operate in a water-free liquid environment of organic solvents. The optical tweezers act as a light-based "tractor beam" that can assemble nanoscale semiconductor materials into larger structures.

Decoding plant chatter could lead to stronger crops

University of Delaware

Researchers will use a $2.25 federal grant to study how cells communicate within plants, and between plants and pathogens, to develop crops that are resilient to disease and other stresses. The work also could play a role in reengineering plants and microbes to improve biofuel production.

Structured Light Promises Path to Faster, More Secure Communications

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Quantum mechanics has come a long way during the past 100 years but still has a long way to go. In AVS Quantum Science, researchers from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa review the progress being made in using structured light in quantum protocols to create a larger encoding alphabet, stronger security and better resistance to noise.

Search for Lightweight Alloying Solutions Earns Team a Gordon Bell Finalist Nomination

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A team used the Summit supercomputer to simulate a 10,000-atom magnesium dislocation system at 46 petaflops, a feat that earned the team an ACM Gordon Bell Prize finalist nomination and could allow scientists to understand which alloying materials to add to improve magnesium alloys.

Newswise: Excavating Quantum Information Buried in Noise

Excavating Quantum Information Buried in Noise

Department of Energy, Office of Science

Researchers developed two new methods to assess and remove error in how scientists measure quantum systems. By reducing quantum “noise” – uncertainty inherent to quantum processes – these new methods improve accuracy and precision.
