Welcome to Spinhenge@home!|
Many thanks for the interest in this project!
Spinhenge@home uses the inactive processor resources of your computer and when the screensaver is active, instead of the usual display, one of our graphics will be displayed. With your participation you will actively support the research of nano-magnetic molecules. In the future these molecules will be used in localised tumor chemotherapy and to develop tiny memory-modules.

News is available as an RSS feed.
Today we got our new server hardware for the labs and the project.
It could take time to migrate all the old servers to VMs.
Our PhDs are working on a new client.

First, please excuse the long phase where we have reported nothing new. Thomas has become the successor of Mr. Hartmann
and manages now the labs "Compuattional Science Lab" and "Technical Computer Science".
This was and is a lot of work and therefore Spinhenge@home came a little bit too short.
Second, the forum is now back online. It can be reached here.
Third, we are currently reorganizing our software architecture for the client application which unfortunately takes much more
time than planned. One thing is that we want to merge all input information in just one compact file, so that we can save space
and time on your computers. Also, we are implementing several new functions. Most important for us now is a new method that
allows us to simulate a magnetic nano system which is subject to a time dependent magnetic field. With this we are able to
calculate the so-called AC susceptibility for a system which gives us information about its internal energy barriers.
This property is vital for identifying so-called single molecular magnets (SMM). These SMM are candidates for future memory
devices since they allow to store information in a much smaller space than conventional magnetic recording materials.
The implementation of this method is not that easy and requires the numerical solution of stochastic differential equations
which simulate the dynamics of the individual magnetic moments in a nano system. The first big chunk of this task is done and
successfully tested (many thanks to Andrértmeier!). We hope to be able to do first test calculations using the new client application soon!
Fourth, we are currently planning the reorganization of our server infrastructure. The three project server should run in the
future in a virtual environment.
Please keep fingers crossed! And thanks a lot for your patience!
Kind regards, Christian Schrö der, Thomas Hilbig
