OSC's new password change policy, affecting all clients using OSC HPC production services, requires every HPC account password to be changed every 90 days. This new policy is part of a set of policies and procedures enacted to improve data security for regulatory compliance rules, such as HIPPA. More information.

Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a research group from The Ohio State University. The researchers found that a magnetic field reduced the amount of heat flowing through a semiconductor, and simulations performed at OSC showed that the magnetic field induces a diamagnetic response in the phonons.
