Interview: How Supercomputers Power Graphene Research

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Over at HPC Wales, Biagio Lucini from Swansea University describes how essential supercomputing resources are to his research in the “miracle material” that is graphene.

Our work involves characterising Graphene from its theoretical properties. The material has enormous potential but is not in use on a large scale as of yet, as we don’t know enough about its characteristics. Using supercomputers we will be able to develop an understanding of its theoretical properties using numerical simulations.

Lucini goes on to say that there is a lot of confusion in the outside world about what HPC is and what it is not, and that seeking the right expertise is essential. Read the Full Story.
