JARA | HPC

Applications for computing time on the JARA Partition for the next computing time period (May 01, 2018, till April 30, 2019) can be submitted until February 23, 2018, 5:00 pm. In addition to computing time on the RWTH Compute Cluster Aix-La-Chapelle (CLAIX) you can also apply for computing time on the JURECA Cluster Module and the JURECA Booster Module, which has been established at Forschungszentrum Jülich in November 2017. Apply now.

Most of the automobiles on the roads today continue to move with conventional engines. Petrol and diesel are the predominant fuels. However, the environmental performance of these fuels is anything but green. For some years, not only the demand for alternatives has been increasing, but also the number offer of new technologies. Scientists from the Institute for Energy and Climate Research have now compared battery and fuel cell in a study and evaluated their profitability.

Scientists JARA have discovered a phenomenon similar to the laser effect with which the structure of organic molecules can be examined at previously unmatched levels of precision. In contrast to a laser, this "raser" (radiowave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is pumped with parahydrogen and does not operate at light frequencies, instead oscillating continuously at various radio frequencies of around 100 kHz. A precise fingerprint of the molecular structure can thus be obtained.
