Posted March 12, 2019 17:03:13Germany’s top computer experts have come up with a new kind of supercomputer – built with zero field.
Key points:Electrons are driven by magnetic fields and spin at the same rateThey could be used in devices that work on energy and communications, but are more expensiveThe machine is expected to be ready for testing next yearElectrons in a super computer can be driven by a magnetic field that’s about 10 times stronger than the Earth’s.
“There’s a new class of supercomputers, where we’ve really made a leap forward in terms of the technology,” said Klaus Biermann, chief scientist of the German Center for Computational Science and Applications, in a statement.
“They are based on the concept of a ‘super-magnet’, a magnet that is about 10 to 100 times stronger,” he said.
“We’re using this concept to build a machine that has zero field, which means the electrons can’t be driven in a traditional way.”
Instead, they’re driven by the magnetic field.
“This new technology could potentially have applications in energy and communication, but is more expensive than what the European Union has been offering.”
This means that, when it comes to the amount of power and the efficiency, there’s a trade-off,” Dr Bierman said.
He said it was important that the machines were not too costly for the German public to use.”
The biggest challenge is that we can’t build these machines in large numbers,” he told the ABC.”
So, they are very specialised machines that have to be used by the public,” he added.”
But we want to make sure that there’s not too many of them.
“Dr Biermans work will focus on the development of new computing technologies that could make it possible to develop faster, cheaper supercomputing.”
In this way, we will create a better future for the future of computing,” he explained.”
I think it’s important to use the opportunity to develop new technologies that are less expensive and more powerful.
“In this case, the researchers have been working on a new type of computer called the quantum computer.”
If we want the technology to reach the next stage, it will be possible to create a new supercomputer that is much faster, has a lot more performance and is more powerful,” Dr van der Kenks research director said.”
They’re very fast, but they also are very expensive.”
“If we want the technology to reach the next stage, it will be possible to create a new supercomputer that is much faster, has a lot more performance and is more powerful,” Dr van der Kenks research director said.
The German supercomputer will be the biggest supercomputer to date, Dr van den Kolk said.
It is designed to be able to run 10 teraflops of computing.
“It’s the biggest single supercomputer in the world,” Dr Van der Kok said.
