Shrinking Lasers, Slicing Time
A new algorithm slices the computing time required to refine designs of surface-emitting lasers from 12 hours to 30 seconds.
Release date: 1999-02-09
City Of Light
Picture this: Light -- photons -- racing through a miniaturized city. Some photons zoom along thoroughfares. Others navigate the city's streets, making hard right and left turns. The buildings lining the streets house still other photons that, like a fleet of taxis, are fueled and ready to be called into service.

Stressed Out Metals
The British poet William Blake saw a universe in a grain of sand and eternity in an hour. Physicist Arthur Freeman also sees a universe in tiny things -- a universe of opportunity for materials science. Using modern quantum physics, Freeman explores the interactions among electrons and nuclei that give rise to the fundamental properties of matter. And fortunately for him, access to the supercomputing resources of the Alliance ensures that it won't take an eternity to make the calculations.

A Cure for Composites
Basically, the curing process is like a baseball game -- most of it is pretty boring, until there is a home run. In this case, the bulk of the curing chemical reaction occurs in a relatively short period of time (146 - 150 minutes), during which the temperature jumps sharply and so does the degree of cure.
