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…

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…

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…

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 II and MLZ.

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.

Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have succeeded in demonstrating the existence of a novel nanoswitch with the aid of neutrons. In addition to the on and off function previously known for nanoswitches, this switch can be brought into a third stable standby state. The discovery…

The TUM working group "High Density Nuclear Fuels / Reactor Physics" will present its research results at the international "European Research Reactor Conference (RRFM)" in Helsinki from September 24 - 29. In 2023, it will also be clarified how the FRM II will be made ready for operation with lower…

Lower energy consumption and new functions in semiconductor technology promises the new two-dimensional material. Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich have discovered new properties in quantum mechanics, together with team members from Germany, France and China. They achieved this with the future…

Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich and Donghua University in Shanghai, China, have demonstrated a skin-like synthetic material intended to advance the development of so-called “wearables”, as well as smart clothing and artificial skin for robots. Neutrons from the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz research…
