After malaria, leishmaniasis is the second most common cause of death from a parasite. The disease endangers more than 310 million people worldwide. Now, Spanish and German researchers at the MLZ have used neutrons to significantly improve the effectiveness of a drug against leishmaniasis. They smuggle the active substance in disguise. ...

Batteries with an anode of carbon and silicon store more energy than anodes of pure carbon. This makes them highly interesting for the energy revolution. In order to increase their efficiency in future, researchers from Ulm investigated the batteries with neutrons at the MLZ and discovered a new ageing mechanism that distinguishes them from pure...
