Cosmic-Ray Physics with the AMS Experiment on ISS

Since 2012, scientists at RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich have been using the JARA-HPC Partition for the realization of interdisciplinary research projects. Currently, more than 50 projects are being processed using the computing resources of the JARA-HPC Partition. One of these projects is "Cosmic-Ray Physics with the AMS Experiment on the International Space Station" by JARA-HPC member Prof. Dr. Stefan Schael. Picture © NASA more

Allocation of computing time

The Vergabegremium (VGG) has recently decided on the projects that will be able to use computing time in the upcoming period. 81 of 86 submitted proposals have been approved with a total computing power of 140 Mio. Core-h.

JARA-HPC "Simulation" events

The JARA presentations and workshops on simulation inform interested students and scientists of all faculties about events related to simulation sciences.


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.
