    Researchers at the Forschungszentrum Jülich develop novel process for structuring quantum materials

    Jülich, 29 July 2019 – Implementing quantum materials in computer chips provides access to fundamentally new technologies. To build high-performance quantum computers, for example, topological insulators have to be combined with superconductors. This fabrication step is associated with a number of challenges that have now been solved by researchers from Jülich. Their results are presented in the current issue of the journal "Nature Nanotechnology".

    Scientists film molecular rotation

    Scientists have used precisely tuned pulses of laser light to film the ultrafast rotation of a molecule. The resulting “molecular movie” tracks one and a half revolutions of carbonyl sulphide (OCS) – a rod-shaped molecule consisting of one oxygen, one carbon and one sulphur atom – taking place within 125 trillionths of a second, at a high temporal and spatial resolution.

    AI-powered tool predicts cell behaviors during disease and treatment

    Scientists at Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a tool that promises to reshape the way we study disease and disease treatment on a cellular level. Mohammad Lotfollahi, Alex Wolf and Fabian Theis at the Institute of Computational Biology developed scGen, an AI-powered tool for predicting a cell’s behavior in silico. scGen will help map and study cellular response to disease and treatment beyond experimentally available data. Their work has been published in Nature Methods.

    Space exploration on the sea floor

    26 July 2019 / Kiel. 35 million years ago, an asteroid/comet hit the North American coast near Washington, D.C. The resulting 40 km-diameter Chesapeake Bay impact crater has been studied by an international research team, led by a scientist now at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel. In marine sediments from a core drilled 400 km from the impact crater, they identified and dated individual crystals that are clearly attributed to this extraterrestrial impact event. The study was recently published in the international journal Meteoritics & Planetary Science.
