The Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering of RWTH Aachen University, headed by JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Christoph Broeckmann, work (among other subjects) on the challenge to adjust cast iron perfectly to the use for wind turbins.
The JARA-FAME Annual Report 2015 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.
Quantum computers are viewed as ultrafast computers of the future. The Scalable Solid State Quantum Computing project aims to establish the conditions for future multi-qubit systems. In order to realize such systems with several hundred qubits, new technologies are required so that the qubits can be precisely controlled. Forschungszentrum Jülich, RWTH Aachen University, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology are all involved in the project, which is being provided with € 6 million in funding by the Helmholtz Association.
