Faculty Research Group receives Funding
The Plasma Simulation Group led by Professor Warren Mori has been awarded a major research instrumentation award for $1.8M to build a cluster based on general purpose graphical processing units. The Dawson 2 cluster will be a major tool for making advances in plasma based accelerator and fusion energy research. It will also provide a resource for campus-wide efforts in learning how to use advanced architectures for computational-based research. The cluster will help to advance research and education in broad and diverse areas of Computational Science at UCLA.
