Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II)
Physicists from the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the University of Cologne have discovered at FRM II a new type of magnetic ordering in the metallic compound manganese silicon.
With the "Exzellenzinitiative" the DFG (German Research association) starts a videoportal about the funded "Exzellenzcluster". A film about the Munich Cluster "Origin and Structure of the Universe" can also be watched.
Right before the end of this year and before the next proposal round, the first edition of the FRM II newsletter has been published today.
