The Stifterverband selected the ten best ideas from the fields of science, education and innovation in its anniversary initiative "Wirkung hoch 100". The app "phyphox" is among the ten finalists. The app turns your smartphone into a science lab. JARA-FIT scientists Prof. Christoph Stampfer and Dr. Sebastian Staacks developed the application in collaboration with students.
The international conference Science - Peace - Security (SPS) took place on September 8 - 10, 2021 at RWTH Aachen University. It was organized by Prof. Malte Göttsche under the topic The impact of new technologies: Destabilizing or enabling resilience? Around 200 participants with different research backgrounds such as natural or technical science but also social and political science had the chance to discuss topics like emerging technologies, confidence-building, cyber security and arms limitation.
A team of 17 international researchers has discovered new properties in magnonics-based two-dimensional materials. The investigations and results can be used to further improve information technologies with regard to space, speed and energy consumption. Among others, the two JARA-FIT scientists Prof. Stefan Blügel and Prof. Thomas Brückel were involved in the research work.
On the first of October, the "Jülich Biotech-Day" will take place as an online symposium. The event focuses on the topic of white biotechnology. Experts from science and industry will present current highlights and trends in this exciting field of research and development at the Jülich Biotech-Day. Both JARA partners, Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University, are involved in the event. The organizer of the day is JARA-CSD member Prof. Wolfgang Wiechert.
Three new directors are strengthening research on innovative computer technologies at Jülich. Focusing on quantum computing and neuromorphic computing, Prof. Rami Barends, John Paul Strachlan and Emre Neftci moved to Jülich from California. In the future, the work of JARA members in the Fundamentals of Future Information Technology section will also benefit from their expertise.
