Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II)



Scientists study method for researching magnetic materials

Physicists from the University of Luxembourg, the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) and a team of research partners have demonstrated for the first time in a comprehensive study how different magnetic materials can be examined using small-angle neutron scattering. The scientists around Dr. Sebastian Mühlbauer (MLZ, Technical University of Munich)...[more]


A lighthouse of innovation – 15 years of FRM II

For exactly 15 years the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) of the Technical University Munich has been providing neutrons for research, industry and medicine. Today, and from the beginning, the neutron source is one of the most powerful and modern sources worldwide. Each year around 1000 international customers come to Garching...[more]


Neutrons help understand the cause of amyloidosis – a rare but, so far, incurable disease

New research published in Nature Communications may help scientists understand the cause of the rare and incurable disease transthyretin amyloidosis. A team of scientists based at Keele University (UK) and the Institut Laue-Langevin (France) has been trying to understand the mechanism by which the disease is caused. Neutron crystallographic...[more]
