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.

In a festive ceremony, JARA senior professor Knut Urban was awarded the Kavli Prize for Nanoscience. The former director of the Jülich Institute for Microstructure Research and the Ernst Ruska Center for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons already received the award in May 2020, together with Prof. Harald Rose (University of Ulm), Prof. Maximilian Haider (CEOS GmbH, Heidelberg) and Prof. Ondrej Krivanek (Nion Company, Seattle). The official award ceremony took place today in Oslo.

Tiny magnetic vortex structures in materials, called skyrmions, form a basis for innovative concepts for information processing with higher performance and less energy consumption. Furthermore, skyrmions influence the electronic and thermodynamic properties of a material. Jülich scientists, together with colleagues at RWTH Aachen University and the University of Uppsala in Sweden, have now experimentally demonstrated anti-skyrmions for the first time.

Memristive memory cells could revolutionize the energy efficiency of neuromorphic computers. In these computers, which are modeled on the functioning of the human brain, memristive cells function like artificial synapses. Researchers at Jülich have now summarized the physical principles and models in a comprehensive review article in the renowned journal "Advances in Physics". JARA-FIT member Prof. Rainer Waser played a key role in the research.

JARA | CSD

Finally back in presence: The JARA CSD Workshop will take place on August 29 and 30, 2022 in a very special atmosphere and with plenty of space on a historic industrial site in the north of Aachen.
Scientists from RWTH Aachen University and FZ Jülich will meet here to discuss the role and future of simulation and data science. Topics will include quantum and excascale computing, simulation data management, collaboration with other institutions such as the RWTH AI Center, and the role of the JARA CSD in the next round of the Excellence Strategy.
