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 five research sections, a JARA-Center and four

JARA-Instituts.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.

This summer, JARA-BRAIN Professor Paolo Carloni's institute will host autism researcher Dr. Silvia De Rubeis from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. Dr. De Rubeis received the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award, worth 45,000 euros, for her research on autism spectrum disorders (ASD). She was nominated by Prof. Carloni. The JARA-BRAIN Institute for Molecular Neuroscience and Neuroimaging also offers the young scientist the opportunity to work with experts from RWTH Aachen University.

Forschungszentrum Jülich and the University of Würzburg will together investigate the quantum phenomena of topological materials and the opportunities they present within quantum computing. With Professors Detlev Grützmacher, Stefan Tautz, Stefan Blügel and David DiVincenzo, four JARA-FIT scientists are involved in the project.

The smallest interactions with the environment can result in the loss of sensitive effects in quantum systems. Researchers from TU Delft, and JARA partners RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich now describe an experiment in which a quantum system consisting of two coupled atoms behaves stably under electron bombardment. The experiment could provide an indication that quantum states in a quantum computer can also be realized more easily in certain cases than previously thought.
