Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Electromagnetics modeling and simulation for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy

We propose to develop a finite element code (using FEniCS) to solve Maxwell's equations to compute electric field due to the surface plasmon that is induced in a device to image the movement and interaction of molecules in a cell.
