A pillar from minus to plus: Art for the future new buildings

There will also be art at or in the new twin buildings on the grounds of the FRM II, for which the groundbreaking ceremony took place in February 2017. From 4 to 8 December, the submitted six proposals for this art can be viewed in the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS). Room 0 is to the right of the main entrance and open daily from 8am to 4pm.[more]


New method for drug research: Detecting Membrane Changes Using Neutrons

Drugs can alter the structure of cell membranes. This in turn can affect their function and cause undesirable side effects. The structural changes in cell membranes caused by drugs have not yet been sufficiently investigated. Researchers from J├╝lich, Garching (near Munich), Georgia, and France now want to change this. They have developed a new...[more]


Twisted magnetic fluctuations in superconductors

A Chinese research group led by Prof. Jun Zhao at Fudan University founded the twisted magnetic excitations in the new Fe-based superconductor Li0.8Fe0.2ODFeSe from a neutron scattering experiment on PUMA, MLZ and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the United State. This finding provides one step further in understanding of the mechanism in high...[more]
