Computational Physics Research Laboratory

Computational facilities at SNS include a high-performance AMD cluster consisting of 8064 cores (plus two nodes with GPU processors) delivering a theoretical peak performance of ~238 TF. Additionally, there are several stand-alone Linux workstations. These machines are used for research purposes by graduate and undergraduate Physics students to perform calculations based on wave-function-based methodology, density functional theory (DFT), time-dependent DFT, Monte Carlo Methods, Molecular dynamics, etc. Several simulation codes/packages like Quantum ESPRESSO, KWANT, SMMP, LAMMPS, VESTA, VMD, MATLAB, etc., in addition to self-developed codes, are available in the lab.
