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...
