JARA – Jülich Aachen Research Alliance

Focusing Expertise - Shaping the Future
In the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich pool their outstanding expertise in six research sections. These common efforts open up

new research opportunities and facilitate projects that would not be attainable for either of the partners on their own. Furthermore, their attention is always focused on the grand challenges facing society.


Sometimes it's the little things that make the difference. Especially in the world at the nanometer scale. Prof Markus Ternes is a scientist and lecturer at the two JARA partners RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich. His research area is the structure and dynamics of atomic and molecular model systems. Together with colleagues from Strasbourg and San Sebastián, Ternes has now refined scanning tunneling microscopy for his research in order to explore the magnetic structures of complex materials at the atomic scale.

After a careful design, optimization and test phase at an external beamline of the Cooler Synchrotron COSY of Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), the JEDI polarimeter (JePo) has recently been installed into the storage ring. It replaces the venerable EDDA detector, which was one of the earliest experimental installations in COSY, used for investigations of unpolarized, single and double polarized proton-proton elastic scattering experiments.
