Researchers from Jülich, Poland and Japan have discovered and analysed a new many-body state in an iron crystal. Its existence sheds new light on the physics of the interaction of conducting electrons and magnons which are excitations in magnetic systems. The JARA-FIT scientists Prof. Stefan Blügel and Prof. Claus Michael Schneider are significantly involved in the investigations.
Prof. Karen Veroy-Grepl Ph.D. (Graduate School AICES) has received a coveted Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC).ERC Consolidator grants are designed to support researchers at the stage of consolidating their own research team or programme. This grant scheme strengthens recently created independent and excellent research teams.
The European Research Council (ERC) has announced the list of new ERC Consolidator Grant holders. For the second time, JARA-FIT scientist Prof. Christoph Stampfer has been awarded an ERC Grant. After an ERC Starting Grant in 2011, the physicist will now receive a Consolidator Grant. The funding amounts to up to two million euros over a period of five years.
The JARA-FIT Annual Report 2017 gives an overview about the different occurrences like events, honours and research results. The reports also contains a current list of JARA members and involved institutes. Research reports give a summery about the work an development of the section.
Applications for computing time on the JARA Partition for the next computing time period (May 01, 2019 till April 30, 2020) can be submitted now until February 11, 2019. Applications for computing time on the JARA Partition can be submitted by any scientist of RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich qualified in his or her respective field of research.
