Flash Center moves to Rochester, advances cutting-edge physics research

Petros Tzeferacos (R), Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Senior Scientist at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) and Director, Flash Center for Computational Science, explains FLASH simulations of laser-driven experiments that study fluctuation dynamo in turbulent magnetized plasmas in the Omega laser facility at LLE to LLE deputy director Chris Deeney (L), FLASH center research scientist Adam Reyes (2R), and FLASH center Graduate Research Assistant and Horton Fellow Abigail Armstrong (2L) at the VISTA Collaboratory at University of Rochester’s Carlson Library January 14, 2022. The Flash Center recently moved from the University of Chicago to the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rochester. The center is devoted to computer simulations used to advance an understanding of astrophysics, plasma science, high-energy-density physics, and fusion energy. // photo by J.
