"Giant" Charge Density Disturbances Discovered in Nanomaterials
Jülich, 26 November 2014 – In metals such as copper or aluminium, so-called conduction electrons are able to move around freely, in the same way as particles in a gas or a liquid. If, however, impurities are implanted into the metal’s crystal lattice, the electrons cluster together in a uniform pattern around the point of interference. Scientists in Jülich have, with the help of computer simulations, now discovered a combination of materials that strengthens these Friedel oscillations and bundles them, as if with a lens, in different directions.

Modelling the Human Brain

To understand the human brain using simulation – that’s the vision of the Human Brain Project (HBP). In order to make it a reality, researchers from 23 countries are working together to build a unique infrastructure that will allow them to establish and further develop a brain research and information technology network. Jülich scientists will contribute their expertise primarily in the areas of structure and function of the brain, as well as supercomputing and simulation. more: Modelling the Human Brain …

The Human Brain Project

Scientists involved in the Human Brain Project aim to gain a deeper understanding of the human brain. This will not only help to understand what makes us human, but also lay the foundation for new therapies to treat brain-related diseases. New insights might also be useful for new approaches in information technology. Four videos highlight various aspects of research undertaken at Jülich within the European Human Brain Project.
