3D Simulations of Jittering-Jets in Core-Collapse Supernovae on Cy-Tera

Dr. Manthos Papadopoulos’ group from the National Hellenic Research Foundation in cooperation with others scientists from France, Slovakia and Norway were awarded 200,000 CPU hours and 5,000 GPU hours upon Cy-Tera to perform a series of demanding and innovative calculations for the linear and non-linear optical properties of graphenes and carbon nanotubes so as to provide more accurate results than those currently available and at a lower computational cost. This study was important, as the systematic computational study of their molecular (hyper) polarizabilities could provide an insight on the structure-property relationship of nano-derivatives. These systems could compose the fundamental building blocks for the development of materials greatly needed by the photonic industry.
