Superconductors can not only conduct electricity without resistance and are in demand for high magnetic fields. They are also an ideal playground for fundamental research, where physicists test theories for general physical phenomena. In a collaboration between the MLZ and the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, PhD student Xaver Brems used superconductors to…

From May 31st to June 3rd, this year’s MLZ conference “Neutrons for Mobility” took place in Lenggries. Fifty scientists exchanged ideas on topics related to mobility and neutron research at the interdisciplinary event, contributing to a lively, diverse meeting.

A research team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has taken an in-depth look at the internal workings of batteries during charging and discharging. Their findings may help optimize charging processes.

A very interested and enthusiastic State Minister visited the Research Neutron Source, “one of the most powerful and versatile neutron sources worldwide”, as Scientific Director Prof. Dr. Peter Müller-Buschbaum introduced FRM II.
