On the last day of the two-week long Summer Institute, high school mathematics teacher Renea Hittle shared her perspectives on the value that the K-12 STEM program provides to participating students. Read more on the OH-TECH Blog!
Engineers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) have just launched the Ruby Cluster, pictured above, and are now planning to build a newer, even more powerful system in 2015/2016. The new supercomputer will help researchers in their quest to make amazing discoveries and important innovations.
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.

Chancellor John Carey joined Pankaj Shah, executive director of OSC and OARnet, and Professor Thomas Beck, chair of the Statewide Users Group, on April 9 to dedicate the center's newest system — the HP/Intel Xeon Phi Ruby Cluster. The system highlights a new direction in system acquisition through a partnership with two significant "condo" partners.
