In this work, we investigate an energy-efficient simulation technique using NVIDIA compute unified device architecture (CUDA) to fast analysis of nanomaterial properties. In this approach, multithreaded parallel programming is used to solve the concurrent/parallel segments of the problem. The sequential portion of the program is executed on a multicore central processing unit (CPU), and the parallel portion of the program is executed on a graphics processing unit (GPU). Experimental results from finite difference method (FDM)-based on Laplace's equation demonstrate up to 257x speedup and 97% energy savings over a parallel MATLAB implementation while solving a 4Kx4K problem with reasonable accuracy.
