Video: Using HPC to build Clean Energy Technologies

Maria Chan from NST presented this talk at Argonne Out Loud. “People eagerly anticipate environmental benefits from advances in clean energy technologies, such as advanced batteries for electric cars and thin-film solar cells. Optimizing these technologies for peak performance requires an atomic-level understanding of the designer materials used to make them. But how is that achieved? Maria Chan will explain how computer modeling is used to investigate and even predict how materials behave and change, and how researchers use this information to help improve the materials’ performance. She will also discuss the open questions, challenges, and future strategies for using computation to advance energy materials.”

Video: Breaking Bad and Science in Cinema

Our Video Sunday feature continues with this talk by Argonne computational scientist Dr. Marius Stan on the topic of Science in Cinema. You may know Dr Stan from the role he played as Bogdan Wolynetz, the car wash owner on the hit TV show Breaking Bad. This is a fascinating talk that puts science and simulation in a framework that your whole family can understand.
