At the beginning of this year, a new in-pile Gamma-converter and Pt-moderator were installed at the neutron induced positron source NEPOMUC. The intensity of the 1 keV positron beam amounts to 9.0±0.8 · 108 moderated positrons per second and is hence the world highest intensity of a mono-energetic positron beam reported so far. Up to now, no... [more]

The International Workshop on energy selective neutron imaging was successfully held in Munich-Garching from April 20th to 24th, 2008. [more]

At the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) physicists from the Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research (Stuttgart) found new puzzling features in superconducting niobium and lead, which are not explained by the accepted BCS theory. The problem is thought to be solved since 50 years - obviously it was not possible to see all... [more]
