Jülicher Supercomputer JUQUEEN
Physicists Calculate Exactly When Atomic Nuclei Become Unstable
Jülich, 8 December 2017 – When atomic nuclei contain too many neutrons, they break apart. An international team of physicists has now developed a breakthrough method to calculate the exact point at which the nuclei become unstable. The results allow more detailed insights into the structure of atomic nuclei, which scientists hope to use to understand more about the creation of the elements after the Big Bang. The calculations were performed on the Jülich supercomputer JUQUEEN.

Calibrating ozone sondes

In the beginning of November, climate researchers from all over the world met in Jülich to calibrate ozone sondes used in international ozone observation projects. In two video interveiws, Dr. Anne Thompson (NASA) and Dr. Hermann Smit (FZ Jülich) talk about the network Southern Hemisphere Additional Ozonesondes (SHADOZ) and how the calibrating of ozone sondes is done.
