One sixth of the annual visitors don’t come on one day for no reason. Like every year the neutron research source had quite a lot to offer.
More than 100 happy children and the same number of parents step out of the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) on October 3rd. The children benefited from a special guided tour during the door-opener-day of “Sendung mit der Maus” (The Show with the Mouse) where they built chemical elements and finally enjoyed a sweet and...
A wealth of new contacts, ideas and information was taken home by more than 520 scientists who attended the "German Conference for Research with Synchrotron Radiation, Neutrons and Ion Beams at Large Facilities 2018" in mid September 2018.
Representatives of eight European research infrastructures signed the Charter of the League of advanced European Neutron Sources (LENS) today at the International Conference of Research Infrastructures, ICRI2018, in Vienna.
Die Technische Universität München (TUM) und das Helmholtz-Zentrum Jülich erweitern zusammen die Forschungskapazitäten der weltweit vielseitigsten Neutronen-Quelle FRM II in Garching. Als gemeinsames Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum errichten sie zwei Erweiterungsbauten mit insgesamt 4550 Quadratmetern Nutzfläche für Labors, Büros und Werkstätten, für...
The new instrument KOMPASS was born on May 29, 2018, at exactly 15:16h. At that time, it detected the first neutrons, which were scattered from a sample.
3 October 2018 is dedicated to children and families: “Die Sendung mit der Maus”, (The Show with the Mouse), a well reputed children's series on German television, called for the nationwide 7th “Door-opener-day”. At the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum, too, doors that usually are closed for children will open.
Neutron scattering has enabled scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich to detect the formation of droplets in supercritical carbon dioxide at high pressure. This finding can be used to determine a phase transition within the fluid with greater accuracy.
The positron source NEPOMUC can be seen on a billboard in downtown Munich until the end of July. The more, a wooden model of the atomic egg is exhibited in a gallery in Augustenstraße, Munich. Both are projects from architecture students at the Technical University of Munich.
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered with the help of neutrons at the instrument SANS-1 two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures,...
