Cooperation of the neutron sources

In a memorandum of understanding, the directors of the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) in Garching, Germany, and the future European Spallation Source ESS in Lund, Sweden, defined a far-reaching cooperation. [more]


Discovery of monochiral helix in neodymium ferroborate

By means of investigations performed at the hot single crystal diffractometer HEiDI at FRM II, Dr. Marc Janoschek demonstrated that the magnetic structure of the multiferroic material neodymium ferroborate is a monochiral magnetic helix. [more]


Neutrons peer into the heart of a rechargeable battery for hybrid locomotives

Rechargeable batteries may soon provide greater energy efficiency not only for road traffic, but also for rail transport. [more]

Flowing together, instead of jumping alone

Molecules in a cell membrane move in a flowing motion in clusters rather than jumping individually into any empty spaces they find. This is what Sebastian Busch and Dr. Tobias Unruh have proven with data obtained from the TOFTOF at the FRM II.[more]


Pupils' day at the FRM II

At the pupils' day of the Technische Universität München eleven pupils took the opportunity to visit the neutron source. They were fascinated by the guided tour with Günter Riegel. [more]
