Dr. Anton Kastenmüller has been appointed to the new Technical Director of the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz.
Definitions in textbooks have to get rewritten: Contradicting to the doctrine, there is no single fluid phase beyond the critical point.
428 visitors came to see the neutron source at the "Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften".

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.
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.
Rechargeable batteries may soon provide greater energy efficiency not only for road traffic, but also for rail transport.
The FRM II will play an active role in an international research programme on alternative techniques to helium-3 based detectors.
The DFG Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) intensifies its commitment to neutron research at the FRM II.
