Toxic and aggressive, but widely used

In toothpaste, Teflon, LEDs and medications, it shows its sunny side – but elemental fluorine is extremely aggressive and highly toxic. Attempts to determine the crystal structure of solid fluorine using X-rays ended with explosions 50 years ago. A research team has now clarified the actual structure of the fluorine using neutrons from the Heinz...[more]


LENS launches activities to strengthen European neutron science

By aligning policies among its partners, LENS will advocate for the user...[more]


Battery and fine dust - Seminar SAAGAS with current applications

Around 70 scientists recently met in Garching on the topics of activation analysis and gamma spectrometry at the seminar SAAGAS (Seminar on Activation Analysis and Gamma Spectrometry). After 2013, the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum hosted the seminar once again.[more]


An elevator with millimeter precision - How to lift a 20-meter long pipe

There is a lot of excitement in the neutron guide hall. The instrument KWS-2, which weighs about 5 tons, is about to be lifted up. It is a Hercules task to move this colossal stainless steel pipe, not only because of its weight but rather due to the coordination needed to do it. By around 10 o’clock in the morning about half of the task was done....[more]
