alt Modeling and simulation are arguably underutilized in both research and teaching. On nanoHUB, you can run over 600 simulation tools in a web browser. Simulation tools appear to run as applets or Jupyter Notebooks in the browser window, but they are actually powered by a sophisticated cyberinfrastructure and run transparently in a scientific computing cloud that taps into supercomputing and national grid resources. nanoHUB uptime regularly exceeds 99%.

alt Anyone with a nanoHUB username and password can run simulations on nanoHUB. If you don't have a nanoHUB account, you can register online. Registration is quick, easy, and completely free! We use the registration information you provide to report quarterly usage statistics to the National Science Foundation. Installation requirements are minimal: You need a relatively modern web browser such as the latest release of Chrome or Firefox, allow cookies, and have Javascript enabled. 

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.
