HPC enables record-breaking ptychographic imaging at the ALS

Scientists at the Advanced Light Source are using the new COSMIC Imaging beamline and a high-performance data pipeline implemented by the IT Division’s Scientific Computing Group to turn large datasets of X-ray diffraction data into high-resolution images. With a technique called ptychographic computed tomography, the researchers recently mapped locations of nanoscale reactions inside a lithium-ion battery in 3D. More>
