Intel While the industry loves to combine “R&D” and we see this in every tech company’s P&L, research and development are very different. Research is high risk, market making investments and discoveries that are unattached to products. Development is applying that research and other’s IP to create an end product or services. Development is less risky. Very few companies do research, and Intel has had a heritage in research for decades. One of the most exciting aspects of working as a tech analyst is, quite frankly, being one of the first to learn of these new, research-driven, cutting-edge technologies coming down the pipeline in the not-so-distant future—from the expected to the truly mind-boggling. As such, I always look...

Digital Rock Analysis of Complex Porous Media using High-Performance Computing Technology

jpt 2020 12 thermofisher sponsored article hero
As the application of Digital Rock Analysis (DRA) expands in industrial and academic settings, the need for digital investigation of more complex porous media, such as carbonates and tight rocks, has increased in the market. These materials exhibit a wide range of different mesoscale properties induced by their complex, multi-scale pore structures and their connectivity. The existence of complex pore space topology and wide pore size distributions requires computations to be done at high resolutions and in a large field of view. This means that the DRA of these samples must have three essential components of "parallel computing, multiscale modeling, and process-based reconstruction of 3D volumes." These are the three main pillars of Thermo Scientific™ e-Core Software, making it a unique solution for the characterization of more heterogeneous...
