Chin Guok Takes On Role as ESnet’s Chief Technology Officer
Chin Guok has been named ESnet’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO). A veteran of ESnet for more than 25 years, he has conceived and led many innovative projects, including the On-Demand Secure Circuits and Advance Reservation System (OSCARS).
The newest generation of the U.S. Department of Energy’s high-performance network dedicated to science was recently unveiled at Berkeley Lab.
Quantum Networking Testbed
QUANT-NET brings together world-leading expertise in quantum technologies, optics, materials, networks, testbed operations, and other assets from Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley, and Caltech in order to build a proof-of-concept quantum network based on entanglement.
DOE to Provide $6 Million for Research on Advanced Networking
The U.S. Department of Energy will fund five projects in basic research to advance 5G wireless networking for science applications. One of those projects will be led by ESnet Research Scientist Mariam Kiran.
Continuing Arecibo’s Legacy
ESnet is part of a multi-institutional partnership that is helping to safely transfer several petabytes of data from 50 years of Arecibo Observatory sky scans.
ESnet and NERSC Take Scientific Data Collaboration to the Next Level
When the Dark Energy Science Collaboration needed a fast, secure, and convenient way to share large data sets with scientists outside of the collaboration, they turned to ESnet and NERSC for help, ultimately choosing an innovative data-sharing solution: the Modern Research Data Portal.
Superfacility Model Brings COVID Research Into Real Time
Turkish researchers working at SLAC Lab's Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) leveraged Berkeley Lab's superfacility model, to capture detailed images of the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Data from the experiments traveled to NERSC via ESnet in real-time, allowing the researchers to monitor the experiment and make changes nimbly as necessary.
ESnet is the Department of Energy's dedicated science network, helping researchers meet their goals from experiment to discovery.
