A collaboration between Open Science Grid in the U.S. and Enabling Grids for E-sciencE in Europe, iSGTW promotes the success of grid computing as a tool for scientists and researchers.
Able to complete in minutes what might take an average PC many months, grid computing offers scientists a new level of computing power, allowing them to delve deeper in to research questions with big answers. Grid computing works by coordinating the power of ordinary computing resources, linking this power into massive multifunctional computing “grids.”
“Scientists are using grid computing 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 shares the exciting scientific breakthroughs that grid computing makes possible.”
“Grid computing is about more than computers,” said Bob Jones, Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project director. “Grids can only work where there is cooperation and collaboration, between countries and between people. Efforts such as iSGTW only reinforce this integration, showing the close ties within the global grid community.”
International Science Grid This Week is jointly funded by the U.S. 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.

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...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
