The AstroTechTalk (ger) offers a place to discuss, for all interested colleagues and especially for the technical departments, the project leaders, the administration and the scientists as the ultimately users:

  • status of instrumentation projects
  • scientific tasks and features of the instruments in construction or planned
  • new possible involvements
  • technical innovations and developments
  • technical problems and their solutions
  • logistical problems and their solutions
  • how to improve operation and observation
  • project standards.

New Time: Always Mondays 15:00 - 16:00

Date Speaker Topic
25.09.2023 Hugo Coppejans Accelerated computing using GPUs with applications in Adaptive Optics for METIS SCAO

Astronomy has always been a data driven field, but as telescopes become more advanced, the amount of data is growing at an unprecedented rate. The Single-Conjugate Adaptive Optics (SCAO) subsystem for METIS, a first light instrument for the upcoming Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) telescope, generates more than 20TB of data every night. To be able to parse all of this data, accelerated computing is crucial.

This talk will give an overview and delve a bit deeper into accelerated computing using GPUs, and how it will be used to operate the adaptive optics (AO) system for METIS at the ELT. This talk will focus on explaining GPU-accelerated coding while giving real examples of how it is being used in our AO prototype.
