The Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) recently announced the winners of their inaugural High Performance Computing (HPC) Achievement Awards.

Included in the award winners is former Northeastern physics student Tanmoy Das. Das, a former student of Professor Arun Bansil, is now a postdoctoral researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Das was nominated for his computational work to understand fundamental materials aspects in three different areas: (1) the role of Fermi surface anisotropy on the superconducting gap structure in multiband iron-based superconductors in the presence of rotating magnetic fields; (2) spin-orbit ordering effects in two-dimensional electron gases and in the hidden order state of URu2Si2; and (3) his seminal contributions to the self-consistent spin-fluctuation theory applied to real materials—the intermetallic actinides.
