Computational Science Education Expert from Capital University Joins Regents, Supercomputer Center on Statewide Project

Columbus, Ohio -- June 13, 2005-- A Capital University professor has been recruited by the Ohio Board of Regents and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to set their statewide computational science program in motion.

Ignatios Vakalis, professor of mathematics and computer science and executive director of the Center of Computational Studies at Capital University, will serve as coordinator for undergraduate education for the Statewide Initiative for Computational Science and also will be appointed as OSC senior fellow.

Biomedical Applications Simulations

As advanced simulations integrate increasingly larger data sets, it is essential to explore the use of high performance computing to assure tractable methods of investigating computational data. As these data combine information from multiple sources, it is important to research advanced interface technology and develop more intuitive methods for interaction with large and complex multimodal data sets. Advanced intuitive interfaces are needed to integrate these vast amounts of multisensory data into a single coherent simulation.

Ohio Supercomputer Center empowers development of new solar energy material

By Pam Frost Gorder

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- October 22, 2008 -- Researchers have created a new material that overcomes two of the major obstacles to solar power: it absorbs all the energy contained in sunlight, and generates electrons in a way that makes them easier to capture.

Ohio State University chemists and their colleagues combined electrically conductive plastic with metals including molybdenum and titanium to create the hybrid material. This new material is the first that can absorb all the energy contained in visible light at once.
