Topological Insulators: Stacking Instead of Mixing


The overheating of computer chips is a major obstacle to the development of faster and more efficient computers and mobile phones. One promising remedy for this problem could be a class of materials first discovered just a few years ago: topological insulators. more

Closing the performance gap between natural and synthetic graphene

Researchers from RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich report on a breakthrough in producing high quality synthetic graphene by chemical vapor deposition.

“MAGicSky”: Research into Energy-Efficient Computer Devices

In “Magnetic Skyrmions for Future Nanospintronic Devices”, or “MAGicSky” for short, scientists from France, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland are pursuing an innovative concept for novel computer components based on magnetic vortices known as skyrmions.


Energylandscape

As part of a cooperation project between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich (JARA), a new database was created, that provides comprehensive overview of the main research areas in energy of the two institutions.
