Expansion of the HPC System

Public Announcement

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is currently accepting proposals for expansion of our high performance computing cluster comprised of 56 traditional CPU compute nodes, a large memory node and a GPU node.  We are looking to expand by 76 compute nodes, including associated software licenses, racks and EDR infiniband network connectivity. These additional nodes must be able to co-exist within the current cluster, running the same software image and connect to a high performance parallel filesystem appliance. Three years of support and installation services must be included.

MASS SPEC NOBLESSE 3he/Ehe

purchase OF a multi-collector noble gas mass spectrometer for high-precision isotopic analysis of all 25 stable isotopes of the noble gases. Specifically, I plan to measure noble gas concentrations and isotopic ratios (helium (total, 3He, 4He), neon (total, 20Ne, 21Ne, 22Ne), argon (total, 36Ar, 37Ar, 38Ar, 39Ar, 40Ar), krypton (total, 78Kr, 80Kr, 82Kr, 83Kr, 84Kr, 86Kr), and xenon (total, 124Xe, 126Xe, 128Xe, 129Xe, 130Xe, 131Xe, 132Xe, 134Xe, 136Xe) using a combination of faraday and electron multipliers. The instrument should also be able to simultaneously multi-collect masses 28, 29, 30 for nitrogen. Simultaneous multi-collection should also be possible for Ne and Ar without any peak jumps. Simultaneous multi-collection for Kr and Xe should be accomplished in 3 peak jumps or less. Helium should be measured by peak jumping, with 4He on the Faraday and 3He on the axial multiplier. 3He should be fully resolved from HD. The instrument should be equipped with a quad lens to enable beam focusing.

The instrument will be used to measure noble gases and nitrogen in a range of samples from fluids, gases, hydrocarbons, rocks, minerals, phenocrysts and xenoliths. It will be interfaced with custom designed extraction lines that our optimized for the species being measured and the sample type.

Additional mass spec specs:

Ion Source

Nier type source fitted with both horizontal and vertical steering.

Ar sensitivity: >1.0A/bar at 400 microA trap current (MRP=2000)

Ar sensitivity: > 0.65A/bar (MRP=3500)

He sensitivity: > 0.14A/bar at 500 microA trap current

 

Mass Resolving Power

Mass Resolving Power = MRP = m/delta m 5 to 95 % on side of peak

MRP: > 3500 (with an Ar sensitivity of 0.65A/bar)

Note: Higher MRP can be achieved but with lower sensitivity

Ar - MRP>3500 for mass 40; MRP>5000 for mass 38 (axial) and MRP>5500 for mass 36 with Ar sensitivity > 0.3 A/bar at 400 uA Trap. Note: the instruments are adjusted to give maximum MRP for mass 36 (low mass channel)

 

Ne - MRP>5000 in the axial collector

N2 - MRP>5000 for Faraday 1 and Faraday 2 (with suitable trap current)

Note: Noblesse is usually operated at 400 microA trap current, as this is found to be suitable for He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe. A lower trap current (approx 150 microA) is sometimes used with N2 to suppress N2H formation. If the trap current is reduced further this may degrade MRP and peak shape.

Mass Range

Mass range m/z = 3 — 140 at 9 kV acceleration voltage

 

Rate of Increase of Blank (static mode)

10-12 ccSTP/min at mass 40

 

Background (instrument pumping)

<5x10-14 ccSTP at mass 36

 

Mass Stability

<50ppm over 30 minutes

 

Peak Flatness

±1 part in 103 over ±300 ppm on Faraday

±2 parts in 103 over ±150 ppm on electron multipliers

 

Electron Multiplier Performance

Noise <0.1 cps

Maximum permissible signal >106 cps

Trip level normally set to 2x106 cps (user selectable)
