Supercomputing Code Helps Develop New Solar Cells

Miriam Boon

If scientists could use simulations to zoom in on the atomic level of solar cells, the insight they gain could launch solar power into the next energy orbital. Unfortunately, those simulations would require an exorbitant amount of computational power. To meet that need, researchers are using supercomputers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
