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.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
