More than 50 years ago, researchers discovered a pronounced phase transition in strontium iron oxide at room temperature. However, what exactly happens in this process at the atomic level has been unclear ever since. Using high-resolution neutron measurements, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research at the Heinz…

Young researchers wanted: MLZ is awarding 15 postdoctoral positions for two years via the EU funded Global Neutron Scientists (GNeuS) project. Applications can be submitted from November 1, 2021 until January 15, 2022.

For the second time, researchers from the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Centre (MLZ), the global biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and Malmö University collaborated to advance the understanding of mRNA therapeutics. This time, their focus was on a specific protein and the question of what happens to the mRNA once it is administered into the blood. …

In the manufacturing of turbines conventional processes often reach their limits. Therefore, additive manufacturing is increasingly used to produce complex, curved components with intricate structures. A research team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now examined common methods used to locate defects inside components. In their…
