The pollutants' journey

Nitrogen oxides and other pollutants that are released into the air by automobiles or power plants can lead to illness and have a significant influence on our climate. This is why there are now various efforts across the country to more accurately measure their total concentrations. However, that is no mean feat. By means of a complex computer model, the experts from the Forschungszentrum Jülich are helping government authorities measure current pollution burden.

Full of Energy: Martin Winter

Batteries move us and our world – they start our car or run the hands of our watches. Energy storage systems have also played a central role in the life of Prof. Martin Winter for almost 30 years. The battery researcher from the Helmholtz Institute Münster, a branch of Forschungszentrum Jülich, has been awarded multiple prizes and will give this year’s Jülich End-of-Year Lecture. We spoke to him.

Low-Cost Pathways to a Carbon-Neutral Energy System

Germany is aiming to achieve broad greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050. In order to reach this goal, the energy system has to be completely transformed in all areas. A new study by Forschungszentrum Jülich shows how this project of the century can be made to be efficient and economically beneficial.

Launch of JUNIQ

"We are counting on quantum computers" is the guiding principle at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, where JUNIQ, the new "Jülich UNified Infrastructure for Quantum computing" was put into operation. The go-ahead was given with the official signing of a user contract, for a quantum annealer from the Canadian quantum computer manufacturer D-Wave.
