Hydrodynamical Simulations of Galaxy Formation at the Peta- and Exascale
ID: 308037
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-07-31
Numerical simulations of galaxy formation provide a powerful technique for calculating the non-linear evolution of cosmic structure formation. In fact, they have played an instrumental role in establishing the current standard cosmological model known as LCDM. However, unlock...

Riddle of light induced degradation in silicon photovoltaics
ID: 307315
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The sun provides enough energy in one minute to supply the world's energy needs for one year. The grand challenge is to turn this enormous energy potential into electricity in a cost-efficient way. So far, silicon has been most successful at this – but we are still very far a...

Cold Collisions and the Pathways Toward Life in Interstellar Space
ID: 307163
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2017-11-30
Modern telescopes like Herschel and ALMA open up a new window into molecular astrophysics to investigate a surprisingly rich chemistry that operates even at low densities and low temperatures. Observations with these instruments have the potential of unraveling key questions ...

Morphing Locally and Globally Structures with Multiscale Intelligence by Mimicking Nature
ID: 308261
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
The objective of the proposed research is to engineer novel multifunctional morphing materials drawing inspiration from biological systems that are known to possess distributed sensing capabilities which in turn guide their local and global morphing. This will be achieved thr...

Quantifying aerosol-cloud-climate effects by regime
ID: 306284
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Global climate change is widely considered one of the main concerns of humankind. However, predictions are highly uncertain, with no substantial improvement since more than three decades. They are hampered by the huge uncertainty of climate forcing, which is dominated by the ...

Probing General Relativity with Stellar Orbits
ID: 306311
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Of the four fundamental forces in nature, gravity is the least tested one. A uniquely accessible laboratory for gravitational physics is the Galactic Center, hosting the closest massive black hole with 4 million solar masses. Its vicinity and the advent of high-resolution, ne...

Sublinear algorithms for the analysis of very large graphs
ID: 307696
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
Large graphs appear in many application areas. Typical examples are the webgraph, the internet graph, friendship graphs of social networks like facebook or Google+, citation graphs, collaboration graphs, and transportation networks. The structure of these graphs contains valu...

Nanodevices for Quantum Optics
[PROJECT] NAQUOP - Nanodevices for Quantum Optics
ID: 307687
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-03-31
We propose developing a nanodevice toolbox for single photon quantum optics. A scalable scheme to generate indistinguishable single photons, an interface to couple single photon polarization to a single electron spin and high efficiency single photon detectors represent the c...

Search for a fourth neutrino with a PBq anti-neutrino source
ID: 307184
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
Several observed anomalies in neutrino oscillation data can be explained by a hypothetical fourth neutrino separated from the three standard neutrinos by a squared mass difference of a few eV2. This hypothesis can be tested with a PBq (ten kilocurie scale) 144Ce antineutrino ...

Single active dopant detection in semiconductor nanowires using electron holography
ID: 306535
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-07-31
"The end of ""happy scaling"" in the semiconductor industry has lead to innovation being a key parameter in nanoelectronics. Doped nanowires of all types of sizes, shapes and composition are now used as components to build nano-electronic devices, light sources, detectors and...
