Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II)
Researchers from Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum / Forschungszentrum Jülich investigated the crystallization of the protein lysozyme in an experiment at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL). They focused on conditions that result in particularly large crystals, which would be sufficient for the method of high-resolution neutron protein crystallography.
The district administrator of the district of Munich recently paid a visit to the FRM II. Christoph Göbel accompanied by executives of the district office went to the reactor pool, into the experimental hall and took a look into the neutron guide hall.
Magnetic skyrmions can potentially store information in a higher density than today's data carriers. Since their discovery using neutrons at the FRM II in 2009, research on magnetic skyrmions is booming. For the first time, physicists of the Technical University of Munich have used a specially adapted imaging technique at the MLZ in order to...
