Researchers Simulate Ice Formation by Combining AI and Quantum Mechanics

January 30th, 2023 | Industry News
Researchers combined AI and quantum mechanics to simulate what happens at the molecular level when water freezes. The result is the most complete yet simulation of the first steps in ice “nucleation,” a process important for climate and weather modeling.

A team based at Princeton University has accurately simulated the initial steps of ice formation by applying artificial intelligence (AI) to solving equations that govern the quantum behavior of individual atoms and molecules. The post Researchers Simulate Ice Formation by Combining AI and Quantum Mechanics appeared first on HPCwire.

Supercomputer Simulations Elucidate Shakes of Explosions, Earthquakes

Explosions are the bread and butter of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), one of the labs under the auspices of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). But not all explosions, of course, are nuclear — and now, researchers at LLNL and waveform simulation startup Mondaic have created a new, supercomputer-powered model to model the ground […]

Researchers Identify New, Cleaner Source for White Light with HPC

January 25th, 2023 | Industry News
Upon irradiation by infrared light, adamantane-based molecular clusters with the general composition [(RT)4E5] (with R = organic group; T = C, Si, Ge, Sn; E = O, S, Se, Te, NH, CH2, ON•) emit highly directional white light.

When early humans discovered how to harness fire, they were able to push back against the nightly darkness that enveloped them. With the invention and widespread adoption of electricity, it became easier to separate heat from light, work through the night, and illuminate train cars to highways. In recent years, old forms of electric light […]

Quantum technologies, i.e. technological devices obtained by building and manipulating quantum mechanical systems, are becoming a reality. The most prominent example is given by quantum computers, where the unit of information, the bit, is replaced by its quantum mechanical counterpart, informally called the qubit. Contrary to classical computers, quantum computers promise to use the full […]
