Science Grid This Week Goes International

At SC'06 last week, the worldwide science grid community launched International Science Grid This Week, a weekly publication reporting news and information about grid computing projects and collaborations, and the scientific research that uses grid computing technology.

International Science Grid This Week is available online and emailed free to subscribers. The publication is the result of a collaboration between the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE and Open Science Grid projects.

“Just as the world’s grids are working more closely together, sharing jobs and data, so too the people working on grid technology are becoming increasingly integrated,” said Bob Jones, Enabling Grids for E-sciencE Project Director. “Efforts such as iSGTW only reinforce this integration, showing the close ties within the global grid community.”

International Science Grid This Week, or iSGTW, builds on the success of its predecessor, Science Grid This Week, which focused on grid projects in the United States and their use in scientific research. The new publication will use articles, images, links and multimedia content to tell the story of scientific grid computing around the world.

“Scientists use grid computing today to fight disease, develop new semiconductors and study the origins of the universe,” said Open Science Grid Executive Director Ruth Pordes. “We’re proud to support a newsletter that will tell the story of the people and projects building grids around the world, and the scientists using them for discovery.”

International Science Grid This Week is funded jointly by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science through the Open Science Grid; and by the European Commission’s Information Society and Media Directorate-General through the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
