Project Description

Project Title: Pierre Auger Cosmic Ray Observatory and Advanced Accelerator Simulation @ Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory: At Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Paul L. G. Lebrun works on two Department of Energy SciDAC-funded projects: the Pierre Auger Cosmic Ray Observatory (located in western Argentina) and Advanced Accelerator Simulation that heavily utilize the AmLight connections. In the Pierre Auger research, 300 scientists from 16 countries study ultra-high energy cosmic rays, the most energetic and rare of particles in the universe.

Collabortors: This work is done in collaboration with other Fermilab Computing Division departments, from all Fermilab divisions and from other institutions from all over the globe. Collaborators that use AmLight connections for mathematical and physical sciences collaborations are located in United States, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and outside of the Americas.
AmLight requirements: Varying network needs including small file transfer, occasional large file transfer, daily large file transfer and grid computing (machine to machine) at speeds ranging from 100 Mpbs to 1 Gbps.
