The activity carried out within this program has focused on acquiring and evaluating a hybrid computational system that has enabled the development of a new generation of multi-scale simulation tools for the design of electronic and photonic materials. This computing hardware has made it possible to test the performance of different hybrid computing architectures in solving a number of problems that are relevant to the simulation of electronic materials and devices. The system can be configured by changing the number and kind of conventional multi-core processors assigned to a certain of problem. The proposed activity has also significantly augmented the quality and quantity of work that the PI is doing within the collaborative research alliance CRA for Multi-Scale Simulation of Electronic MaterialsMSME. The goal of this Army Research Laboratorys initiative is to develop the next generation of material simulation tools. The system acquired using DURIP funds has provided the Computational Electronics Group at Boston University with an unprecedented capability to design electronics and photonics materials that are needed for the next generation of defense systems. The system is currently used for production run and it is expected to continue generating results for the next few years.
