Laboratory Computing: How Molecular Foundry Scientists Model at the Nanoscale

In six of the seven facilities of the Molecular Foundry, scientists at benches or instruments, in lab coats or clean room suits, are hard at work creating and characterizing nanoscale materials. Sandwiched in between those laboratories, however, is a different kind of lab — one within a more traditional workspace of offices and cubicles. “Our computing is our lab space,” said David Prendergast, director of the Berkeley Lab’s Theory of Nanostructured Materials Facility located on the third floor of Foundry.  More >
