American, Chinese and German scientists have found tiny distortions among the otherwise symmetrical atomic order of an iron pnictide superconductor with measurements at the triple axes spectrometer TRISP. They have thus come closer to superconductivity at higher temperatures.
He developed the world's first neutron time-of-flight diffractometer with a 150-meter-long neutron guide at the Atomic Egg in Garching and planned the instruments at the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz. Now Erich Steichele has died at the age of 80 near Bad Wörishofen.
Electrons and their atomic nuclei influence their respective motions in more materials than previously assumed. Scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Forschungszentrum Jülich made this discovery during measurements conducted at TUM’s research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II). Possible applications for the...
We wish you a happy Easter and a successful egg hunt!
The university comes to the school. Under this motto, approximately 70 teachers from all over Bavaria listened to and discussed the talks of the university lecturers on the topic "Renewable Energies" at the 43th Edgar-Lüscher-Seminar.
The Physics Department of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has appointed PD Dr. Christoph Hugenschmidt adjunct professor for the subject "Physics with positrons" at the chair E21 on 15 January. Thereby TUM recognizes the scientific achievements of the 49-year-old as well as his years of engagement to teaching. In an interview, Prof. Dr....
This year's MLZ conference from 4 till 7 June in Lenggries features Neutrons for Information and Quantum Technologies. The early-bird registration is possible until 6 April, abstracts can be submitted until 30 April.
La Fédération Française de la Diffusion Neutronique and MLZ are organizing a French-German workshop aiming at exploring the opportunities of cooperation between French and German neutron scientists against the background of a changing European neutron landscape in Garching, from 14 to 16 May 2019. Register now and submit abstracts until 30 April.
On 28th March, The Research Neutron Source (FRM II) opened its doors for national Girls' Day. More than 30 interested girls were introduced to the job of a "scientist" and learned about neutrons and what you can do with them. Johanna Jochum, scientist at the RESEDA instrument, talks about a typical working day at the neutron source.
In toothpaste, Teflon, LEDs and medications, it shows its sunny side – but elemental fluorine is extremely aggressive and highly toxic. Attempts to determine the crystal structure of solid fluorine using X-rays ended with explosions 50 years ago. A research team has now clarified the actual structure of the fluorine using neutrons from the Heinz...
