One million electric cars are planned to roll on Germany's roads. Although the efficiency of an electric motor is more than twice as high than that of an internal combustion engine, a higher efficiency could save a lot of energy due to the large number of vehicles. Using a new measurement technique, neutrons help to make engines even more efficient.... [more]

The Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) supports the fire departments and the Technische Hilfswerk (THW) with the production of high purity water for surface disinfectants. The ultrapure water production facility at FRM II currently has sufficient capacity, as the reactor is on a maintenance break. [more]

Researchers worldwide are trying to develop drugs or a vaccine against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. In view of the corona pandemic, the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) also offers special access to measurements with neutrons, which can provide important insights into the behaviour of the virus.
