    Towards the Further Miniaturization of FeRAM

    Jülich / Aachen, 2 February 2021. Ferroelectric Random Access Memory, or FeRAM for short, offers both working memory and data storage in one. This saves on the time and energy needed by conventional computers to transport data between the two units. In addition, the saved data is retained even without a power supply. The write performance and service life of these components are already outstanding and the first FeRAMs are already in use, for example in chip cards or RFID tags. However, comparatively small amounts of data can as yet be stored on a FeRAM, as the space required for storing individual bits is too large. The latest studies using electron microscopes by scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University now indicate a way to reduce the size of FeRAM bits by more than a factor of 100.

    Singles or pairs in cancer cells

    An important receptor on the surface of cancer and immune cells prefers to remain noncommittal; sometimes it is present as a single, sometimes as a pair. This was first shown by an MDC team in the journal PNAS, and will decisively advance the development of new medications.

    Naked mole-rats speak in dialect

    Some converse in Creole, while others speak Scots, but it’s not only humans who can be identified by the diversity of language they speak. Naked mole-rats have their own dialects, too. Shared dialect also strengthens cohesion within a colony, a team led by MDC researcher Gary Lewin reports in the current "Science" cover story.

    Harnessing the power of AI to understand warm dense matter

    The study of warm dense matter helps us understand what is going on inside giant planets, brown dwarfs, and neutron stars. However, this state of matter, which exhibits properties of both solids and plasmas, does not occur naturally on Earth. It can be produced artificially in the lab using large X-ray experiments, albeit only at a small scale and for short periods of time. Theoretical and numerical models are essential to evaluate these experiments, which are impossible to interpret without formulas, algorithms, and simulations. Scientists at the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have now developed a method to evaluate such experiments more effectively and faster than before.
