Supercomputing code helps develop new solar cells


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.

“Typically we need to simulate tens of thousands of atoms,” said Lin-Wang Wang, a scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. “For the conventional code, if the number of atoms increases by a factor of ten, the computational load increases by a factor of a thousand.”
