Research Minister Wanka Visits JARA-BRAIN at University Hospital Aachen on her Summer Tour
German Federal Minister of Education and Research Johanna Wanka paid a visit to University Hospital Aachen on 28 July, making RWTH Aachen University the first stop of her summer tour. As part of her visit, minister Wanka therefore spoke in particular with the young scientists involved in the research alliance. In three separate sessions, the minister learned about current research being conducted.

Cartography of the Spin-Orbit-Interaction

Utilizing the magnetic moment (spin) of an electron leads to a faster and more energy efficient processing of bits and bytes than within the actual Si-based processors. So far, manipulation experiments of the spin revealed signals which are much too small for any practical application. A possible reason for the unfavorable efficiency has now...

DESCRAMBLE – Numerical simulation of a supercritical water/steam reservoir
DESCRAMBLE is a EU Horizon 2020 project funded within the “Low Carbon Energy” call: “Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling”. The Institute for Applied Geophysics and Geothermal Energy, headed by JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Christoph Clauser, will accompany the drilling effort with reliable predictions of the physical quantities, like temperature, natural flow or rock properties, of the reservoir on regional and local scale.


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.
