Spraying nanopaper

With a new spray coating process, very uniform layers of cellulose nanofibers (CNF) can be produced on an industrial scale. X-ray investigations at DESY as well as investigations with an atomic force microscope and neutron scattering at the MLZ, show how the layer is structured and can be tailored for different purposes. A Swedish-German research...[more]

What makes an Argentinean come to Garching?

An exciting research question, a highly regarded fellowship, some very cool neutrons, and of course the prospect of a big mug of German beer. This is what drove Dr. Sergio Raul Soria from his study site in Bariloche, Argentina, to the MLZ in Garching. [more]

Bad times for truffle counterfeiters: Neutrons detect trace elements in popular edible mushrooms

Truffles are among the most expensive foodstuffs worldwide. One kilogram of white truffles from Italy can be sold for as high as 9,000 euros. Until now, it was not possible to verify the origin of this exquisite edible mushrooms with absolute certainty. However, scientists at the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) of the...[more]

German-French workshop: How will Europe maintain its pole position in neutron science?

The Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) and the French Neutron Scattering Federation (2DFN) organized a German-French workshop on the research campus in Garching from the 14th until the 16th May 2019. As two national neutron sources in Germany and France will be decommissioned at the end of 2019, the European neutron landscape will change....[more]

Iron selenide revealed as ‘garden-variety iron-based superconductor’

In the pantheon of unconventional superconductors, iron selenide is a rock star. But new experiments by U.S., Chinese and European physicists have found the material’s magnetic persona to be unexpectedly mundane. The group published the results in Nature Materials.[more]

A scientific festival: The MLZ at StreetScience

Research and science fascinate people anywhere and at any time. This was proven once again at this year’s Streetlife Festival in Munich. Despite the initially bad weather, many of the 230,000 visitors came to see us. So, only after a short while, there was a giant queue of old and young in front of our stand. [more]

Superconductor with a twist

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. [more]

A life for neutron research: In mourning of Erich Steichele

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.[more]

Exceptions become the rule

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...[more]
