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.
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.
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.
The neutron decay will be studied with higher precision at the neutron source FRM II.
Rechargeable batteries may soon provide greater energy efficiency not only for road traffic, but also for rail transport.
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.
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.
FRM II uses neutrons to measure moisture in insulation.
Physicists at the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) had a glance into a Roman god. They found, that the figurine is hollow.
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.
