With deep sadness we have received the news of the sudden death of Gert von Hassel, our former press relations officer. He passed away on Sunday, 14th June 2009.
With more than 130 participants, the second FRM II User Meeting on May 25th was a great success. 17 talks and over 70 posters testified to the lively interest and presented the many aspects of research with neutrons at the FRM II. Photos of the User Meeting are now to be found at http://www.frm2.tum.de/en/events/user-meeting-2009/photos/index.html
Erasmus Mundus "European Master of Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities" (MaMaSELF) - Application for period of study 2009/2010 for european students.
2nd FRM II User Meeting May 25th, 2009
The preliminary program has already been arranged!
Physicists at the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) had a glance into a Roman god. They found, that the figurine is hollow.
Skyrmion lattice, inner stresses in composite castings and gaps in superconductivity - the new scientific report of FRM II shows all the highlights of the year 2008.
The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) organises in cooperation with Technische Universität München (TUM), University of Münster and RWTH Aachen a laboratory course in neutron scattering from September 7th till 18th.
The FRM II was granted 1.1 million Euro from the 7th EU framework programme. Including with the amount, that the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) has received, it is in total 2.2 million Euros.
In recognition of his coherent work towards understanding the dynamics of polymers and biological macromolecules using high-resolution neutron scattering techniques Prof. Dieter Richter receives the Walter Hälg Prize 2009.
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.
