The figures speak for themselves: The MLZ User Meeting 2019 comes to an end with the highest number of participants, lectures and posters to date. In addition to exciting scientific discussions, the User Office also had the opportunity to present its new GhOST system. [more]

How pure do atoms vibrate in a metal? Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have investigated this question with the help of neutrons and theoretical calculations. Their results, which also have effects on the calculation of thermal conductivities, have been published today in the... [more]

It is now a good tradition that the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz presents itself at the university contact fair (Hoko) in Munich. Among 300 other exhibitors, the FRM II again this year offered activities for working students, internships and jobs. [more]

Ismail Zöybek has again been awarded for his ingenious invention for wastewater treatment at the research neutron source FRM II. This time the Bavarian State Ministry for Home and Finance awarded FRM II’s technician during an innovation congress in Nuremberg. [more]

55 students from 13 different countries participated at the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science Labcourse at MLZ this year. They learned neutron scattering in lectures in Jülich and experiments at the research neutron source in Garching. [more]

An article examining lithium telluride and lithium selenide at the MLZ for their superionic properties has won the prize for the best publication of 2018 in the journal “Solid State Ionics”. These materials could be used in electrodes of lithium ion batteries. The work is characterized above all by its detailed and didactic structure and provides... [more]

The League of advanced European Neutron Sources (LENS) held its second General Assembly at Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble yesterday, preceded on Tuesday by meetings of its five working groups and the LENS Executive Board. Numerous members of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Center also participated in the meeting. [more]

Prof. Dr. Götz Eckold has now been awarded the Prize for Instrumentation and Scientific Use of the MLZ for his many years of extraordinary commitment. The MLZ honours his great commitment to instrumentation and in particular the instrument PUMA (the three axes spectrometer that in German stands for Polarisationsanalyse Und Multi-Analysator). ...
