US supercomputer Titan does calculations for HZDR cancer research

US supercomputer Titan does calculations for HZDR cancer research

For their calculations, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) will now, starting in 2015, have access to the World’s second-fastest computer. The Dresden research initiative is one of 56 projects the US Department of Energy has granted access to Titan as part of their INCITE program. HZDR’s 3D simulations of laser-accelerated ions is listed as one of their six 2015 highlights. The Dresden scientists are hoping that the computations will yield new insights that may prove useful in proton-based cancer therapy. More
