BMBF supports FRM II-contribution to the design of the ESS

The planned European Spallation Neutron Source (ESS) in Sweden is supported from Bavaria. Scientists of the FRM II will help to develop instruments and novel detectors. [more]


IAEA Director General visits neutron source

At the beginning of his inaugural visit to Germany, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano toured on October 6th the high intensity neutron source FRM II. [more]


10.2 million euros funding for scientific instruments at the FRM II

The instruments are huge, the structures, which are examined with their help are in the nanometer range. The federal ministry for education and research supports those instruments built by universities and institutes at the neutron source with a total sum of 10.2 million euros.[more]


2 million euros funding for particle physics at the FRM II

The neutron decay will be studied with higher precision at the neutron source FRM II. [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]


DFG-funding for FRM II

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. [more]


Tracking down water in aircraft

FRM II uses neutrons to measure moisture in insulation.[more]


Archeology with neutrons: Mass production in Rome

Physicists at the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) had a glance into a Roman god. They found, that the figurine is hollow. [more]


2.2 million Euros for the research with neutrons

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. [more]
