CEA joins DEISA

12.09.2008
The DEISA Consortium operates the Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications. DEISA aims at delivering a turnkey operational solution for a future persistent European HPC ecosystem, as suggested by the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).
The ecosystem will integrate national supercomputer centres (Tier-1), and leadership-class European HPC centres (Tier-0), as planned by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE).

By joining DEISA, CEA will become an integrated part of the European HPC infrastructure, and DEISA is enhancing the European HPC ecosystem by completing their members with a future Tier-0 HPC centre.

This partnership is strengthening the efforts and synergies of DEISA and CEA in their engagements for the advancement of computational sciences in a European HPC infrastructure, and will tighten the integration of the HPC user communities at European level.

Collaborations are envisaged at various levels. These will address both technical issues as well as the HPC support for scientific communities and potentially pilot industry projects.

Benefits and synergies are expected through the usage of the DEISA service structures. The collaboration is especially valued since CEA is a PRACE Principal Partner and candidate to hosting one of the future leadership class Tier-0 supercomputer systems in a European HPC ecosystem.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
