ASDEX Upgrade and Wendelstein 7-X – as if you were there / 360° view of fusion research
You seem to be standing in the plasma vessel looking around: Where otherwise plasmas with temperatures of several million degrees are being investigated, with a virtual-reality viewer you can now roam around there:
The viewer gives access at any time to the plasma vessel of the ASDEX Upgrade fusion device at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Garching, upstairs, downstairs and in the control room.
The plasma vessel of IPP’s Wendelstein 7-X device at Greifswald is likewise always open for a virtual visit, as well as the experimentation hall and the facilities for microwave heating.
A virtual-reality viewer or a VR headset provides virtual access by smartphone (with gyro function and acceleration sensor) or directly on the screen of a PC or tablet, depending on the type of viewer used. And here’s how it works: Select the web address of the device wanted and click there the viewer symbol to select the virtual-reality mode.
The screen then splits in two, one bit for each eye, thus providing a spatial image. Now put on the headset or attach the smartphone to the viewer and then you can look in any direction.
The VR Setup link on the split screen adapts the image to the smartphone or headset used. Selector switches put you through to the various sites. The panoramas were photographed by Volker Steger and the VR conversion was done by Eduard Plesa.

The first unambiguous observation of a radioactive molecule, 26AlF, was made in the ancient nova-like object CK Vul (or Nova Vul 1670), which - most likely - is a stellar-merger remnant. The eruption of the object was observed between 1670-1672 in Europe. The interest in this object has been recently rejuvenated by the discovery of molecular gas of a very peculiar isotopic composition in the remnant.
The finding was announced by an international research team led by Tomasz Kamiński (CfA), including Karl Menten (MPIfR Bonn).
The variable star CK Vulpeculae (CK Vul) is known as the location of a stellar outbreak, a nova, which was observed by European astronomers in the 17th century...
Scientists from NUST MISIS and colleagues from the University of Bayreuth, the University of Münster (Germany), the University of Chicago (U.S.), and Linköping University (Sweden) have created nitrides, a material previously considered impossible to obtain. More amazing, they have shown that the material can be obtained using a very simple method of direct synthesis. Articles about the revolutionary research results have been published in Nature Communications and Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
Nitrides are actively used in superhard coatings and electronics. Usually, the nitrogen content in these materials is low, and it is therefore difficult to get...
An international group of researchers has achieved the world’s first multi-qubit demonstration of a quantum chemistry calculation performed on a system of trapped ions, one of the leading hardware platforms in the race to develop a universal quantum computer.
The research, led by Cornelius Hempel and Thomas Monz, explores a promising pathway for developing effective ways to model chemical bonds and reactions using...
