The neutron source

The FRM II is a modern neutron source of high performance due to its high technical level. It provides a very high unperturbed thermal peak flux in the moderator and ensures short measuring times and allows new applications. Besides the experimental background the secure running and the operativeness must be warranted:

  • The safety concept meets the highest requirements and is based on passive und active security installations.
  • The FRM II owns a so-called compact core containig an uranium silicide-aluminium dispersion fuel, innovative beam guidance of neutrons, irradiation equipment und secondary beam sources. The FRM II meets the high demands of modern experiments with neutrons.

The technical concepts of the new research neutron source ensure a flawless and secure function, which provides the possibility to do modern research with neutrons at high scientific level.
