When quantum particles fly like bees
Quantum simulator provides insights into the dynamics of complex quantum systems A quantum system consisting of only 51 charged atoms can assume more than two quadrillion different states. Calculating the system's behavior is a piece of cake for a quantum simulator. Yet even with today's supercomputers it is almost impossible to verify the result.

'Future scenarios have to be replaced with flexible planning processes'
’Future scenarios have to be replaced with flexible planning processes’
The impact of climate change is constantly becoming more evident, and the war in Ukraine is making it even more urgent that we find new solutions for our energy supply. In an interview, two experts explain how these solutions might look. At the Research Center for Energy and Information (ZEI) Prof. Thomas Hamacher investigates how the energy revolution ("Energiewende") can be accelerated.

Record-breaking and readily available - researchers discover aluminium complex with very strong fluorescence
Record-breaking and readily available - researchers discover aluminium complex with very strong fluorescence
Chemists at the University of Jena have set a new record, having discovered a fluorescent aluminium complex with the highest quantum yield known to date. For virtually every photon absorbed by the substance, a photon is emitted. This could be of benefit in applications such as LED technology. Serendipitous scientific progress "This discovery was literally a case of serendipity," explains Robert Kretschmer, Junior Professor for Inorganic Chemistry of Catalysis at Friedrich Schiller University Jena.

Research in zero gravity - astronaut Matthias Maurer explores properties of concrete on ISS
In early February 2022, German ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer tested how freshly poured concrete behaves under conditions of zero gravity on the International Space Station (ISS), and how this can contribute to environmental protection. The experiment 'MASON / Concrete Hardening' is a joint project of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the University of Cologne, and the University of Duisburg-Essen.

New Computer Model for Black Holes
New Computer Model for Black Holes
The black hole of the giant galaxy M87 shoots out an enormous jet of particles. A theoretical model of this jet has now been developed that fits astronomical observations very well. The galaxy Messier 87 (M87) is located 55 million light years away from Earth in the Virgo constellation. It is a giant galaxy with 12,000 globular clusters, making the Milky Way's 200 globular clusters appear modest in comparison.
