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...

A comprehensive and recognized legal opinion confirms the legality of the operation of FRM II using uranium with an enrichment of up to 93,2% U-235. [more]

After an involuntary interruption, the FRM II will again supply neutrons to its users from science, industry and medicine from today, 14 January. [more]

A constantly growing number of researchers uses neutrons at the MLZ to analyse proteins, DNA or even entire cells. At the conference “Neutrons for Life Sciences”, neutron scattering and life science experts will meet. Both will present and discuss recent results in Lenggries, Germany, from 16 till 19 June 2020. Early-bird registration is possible... [more]

For 10 years the cooperation project TUMKolleg has been supporting exceptionally talented pupils. At the traditional graduation ceremony not only the participants received a certificate. The supervising scientists were also presented with the silver TUM badge of honor. Among them: Dr. Xiaosong Li from MLZ. [more]

Three neutron science research reactors in Europe have ceased operations in 2019. The League of advanced European Neutron Sources, LENS, and the European Neutron Scattering Association, ENSA, warn of a “neutron gap” that could impact scientific research across multiple fields in physics, materials science, chemistry, biology, medical science and...
