EXCELLERAT Centre of Excellence, coordinated by the High-Performance Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart, kicks off, life-streaming a discussion among experts involved in the HPC engineering application LifeCycle.
The centre of excellence is coordinated by the High-Performance Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart (HLRS).
EXCELLERAT’s goal is to facilitate the development of important codes for high-tech engineering, including maximizing their scalability to ever-larger computing architectures and enabling their uptake within the industrial environment.
These activities will support engineers through the entire HPC engineering application lifecycle, including data pre-processing, code optimization, application execution, and post-processing.
We are happy to invite you to follow our expert panel where scientists, application owners and application users discuss how EXCELLERAT will benefit the use of HPC in different application areas such as aerospace and automotive.
As a special guest, Gerd Büttner from Airbus SE will talk about the potential of HPC in engineering from a user perspective. To let media representatives from around the world take part we have set up a video conference. Please find the log in credentials on page 2.
Date: 12 December 2018
Time: 3:00 pm CET: Expert panel moderated by Andreas Wierse (SICOS GmbH) with Bastian Koller (HLRS), Erwin Laure (KTH), Thomas Gerhold (DLR), and Gerd Büttner (Airbus). (During the discussion, the video conference attendees’ microphones will be muted.)
3:30 pm CET: Questions from the attending press.
Venue: High-Performance Computing Center, University of Stuttgart, Nobelstrasse 19, 70569 Stuttgart, (Foyer Rühle-Saal)

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
Process engineers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have developed a method which allows the size and shape of nanoparticles in dispersions to be determined considerably quicker than ever before. Based on gold nanorods, they demonstrated how length and diameter distributions can be measured accurately in just one step instead of the complicated series of electron microscopic images which have been needed up until now. Nanoparticles from precious metals are used, for example, as catalysts and contrast agents for diagnosing cancer. The results have been published in the renowned journal Nature Communications (doi: 10.1038/s41467-018-07366-9).
Even in the Middle Ages, gold particles were used to create vibrant red and blue colours, for example to illustrate biblical scenes in stained glass windows....
The experiments conducted from July until November at the Wendelstein 7-X fusion device at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Greifswald have achieved higher values for the density and the energy content of the plasma and long discharge times of up to 100 seconds – record results for devices of the stellarator type. Meanwhile, the next round of the step-by-step upgrading of Wendelstein 7-X has begun. It is to equip the device for greater heating power and longer discharges. Wendelstein 7-X, the world’s largest fusion device of the stellarator type, is to investigate the suitability of this configuration for use in a power plant.
During the course of the step-by-step upgrading of Wendelstein 7-X, the plasma vessel was fitted with inner cladding since September of last year.
Advances in environmental technology: You don’t need complex filters and laser systems to destroy persistent pollutants in water. Chemists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a new process that works using mere sunlight. The process is so simple that it can even be conducted outdoors under the most basic conditions. The chemists present their research in the journal “Chemistry - a European Journal”.
The chemists at MLU rely on electrons moving freely in water, so-called hydrated electrons, to degrade dissolved pollutants.
The experimental investigation of ultracold quantum matter makes it possible to study quantum mechanical phenomena that are otherwise hardly accessible. A team led by the Innsbruck physicist Francesca Ferlaino has now succeeded for the first time in mixing quantum gases of the strongly magnetic elements Erbium and Dysprosium and creating a dipolar quantum mixture.
Only a few years ago it seemed unfeasible to extend the techniques of atom manipulation and deep cooling in the ultracold regime to many-valence-electron...
