There is a strong suspicion that Helicobacter pylori is linked to the development of stomach cancer. Now an international team of researchers led by Prof. Donald R. Ronning (University of Toledo, USA) has used neutrons to unlock the secret to the functionality of an important enzyme in the bacterium's metabolism. This could be used as a point of...
Anyone who has ever looked out of the window during an intercontinental flight has probably already seen it: cirri, the ice clouds in the upper troposphere (8-12 km high) look like rattled cotton. But also in the lower stratosphere (15-20 km altitude) there are ice clouds, so-called polar stratospheric clouds (abbr. PSCs). These are seen very...
The influence of interactions in high protein concentrations is extremely difficult to quantify experimentally. Neutron scattering experiments performed among other places at the J-NSE instrument at MLZ have now made studies possible in physiological concentrations.
For his commitment to the Campus Choir Garching (CCG), the Technical University of Munich awarded the Karl Max von Bauernfeind Medal to the long-term FRM II employee Franz Michael Wagner.
Johannes Nußbickel follows Dr. Klaus Seebach as Managing Director.
British scientists have elucidated the structure of a vital enzyme with the help of neutrons. This involved the presence of a hydrogen atom. Their results are now published in Nature Communications.
One week of beam time at the PUMA instrument have been enough for international research teams from Beijing and the USA to prove theoretical calculations experimentally. The results bring the global community of superconductors a good deal, because this small, but very important puzzle part has confirmed a theory.
Improved Insight into the Structure of Lipid Membranes: Combining the Strengths of Neutron Reflectivity and Molecular Dynamics
Alexandros Koutsioumpas from Forschungszentrum Jülich has studied the structure of complex lipid membranes at the neutron reflectometer MARIA.
Collaborative project results in the construction of a second UCN source at the TRIGA research reactor in Mainz - Blueprint for Munich-based high-efficiency source
A team of researchers have now found indications of a so-called “spiral spin-liquid” structure in manganese scandium thiospinel single crystals at low temperatures. They used the diffuse scattering neutron time of flight spectrometer (DNS).
