Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Ames Laboratory have been awarded 45 million processor-hours of computer time on Titan, recently named the worldâ€™s premier open science supercomputer. They will use the enormous computational capability of Titan to identify promising compositions of new magnetic materials that do not contain rare earth elements, which are increasingly in short supply. Stronger non-rare earth permanent magnets are critical to replace the current rare earth magnets for energy efficient electric drive motors (used in hybrid and electric vehicles) and more powerful electrical generators (used in wind turbines).
