The first experiment using the lowest temperatures and an external magnetic field has successfully been performed at the thermal three axis spectrometer PUMA.
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.
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.
JCNS School on Data Analysis with FRIDA
The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science offers a school on data analysis with FRIDA on April 28th and 29th. Registration is necessary until March 15th 2010.
The year 2010 will be a year of construction at the neutron source FRM II. Neutrons will be provided on 203 days.
Magnetic interactions could cause certain materials to conduct electricity without loss of power. This happens at higher temperatures than with state of the art superconductors like lead.
The third issue of the FRM II newsletter is available!
The Technische Universitaet Muenchen awards Dr. Ingo Neuhaus, Technical Director of the FRM II, with the Karl Max von Bauernfeind-Medal.
The project Transregio TRR 80 from TU München and the university of Augsburg „From Electronic Correlations to Functionality“ receives funding from the German Research Foundation. A big part of the experiments take place at the FRM II.
Harald Breitkreutz will receive the award for young academics of the German association of radiation protection.
