Modeling and simulation are arguably underutilized in both research and teaching. On nanoHUB.org, you can run over 320 simulation tools in a web browser. Simulation tools appear to run as applets in the browser window, but they are actually powered by a sophisticated cyberinfrastructure and run transparently in a scientific computing cloud that taps into Purdue University and national grid resources. nanoHUB uptime regularly exceeds 99%.
nanoHUB is operated by the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN), whose mission is to enable the use of modeling and simulation in the advancement of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most of the tools on nanoHUB are derived from NCN’s contributions to research in the nano areas of electronics, mechanics, bio, photonics, and materials, primarily through leveraged funding.
