On 03 November, MLZ and FRM II presented itself at the university contact fair HoKo. The event, which is one of the largest German contact fairs between students and companies, took place for the second time in a purely digital format. In addition to numerous other exhibitors, the…

An international research team at the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a new imaging technology. In the future this technology could not only improve the resolution of neutron measurements by many times…

Mobility is a fundamental ingredient of our present society and engages researchers worldwide. The MLZ Conference "Neutrons for Mobility" brings together experts from mobility and neutron research, from 31.05. - 03.06.2022 in Lenggries. Participants can register as Early Bird until…

From now on, students can apply again for the European Master Program MaMaSelf+ (Master in Materials Science for Energy applications using Large Scale Facilities). The goal of MaMaSelf is to apply large-scale research methods to characterize and develop materials. One of the…

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…

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…

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…

The Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) has presented this year’s prize for instrumentation and scientific use just over the fence. The laureate, Prof. Dr. Peter Böni from the Physics Department of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), has built five scientific instruments at FRM…

70 children and 139 adults enjoyed a guided tour of the research neutron source FRM II today. On the Open House and Door-Opening-Day of the “Sendung mit der Maus” program, they took a look inside the reactor hall and learned more about science with neutrons.
