Freeze drying has provided us with tasty dried fruits in muesli, long-life yoghurt cultures and many other important products. For the first time, using neutron beams from the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) research neutron source, a team of scientists has now been able to show us... [more]

How do neutrons contribute to mission-based research. The League of Advanced European Neutron Sources (LENS), of which the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) is also a member, organised a colloquium on this topic in Brussels. The meeting brought together stakeholders from politics... [more]

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... [more]

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... [more]


NINXMACH 2020 invites archaeologists and geologists from 2 to 4 March. Learn more about measurements with neutron computed tomography and promp-gamma-activation-analysis. The workshop with lectures and hands-on exercises offers the opportunity to compare with experiments performed... [more]

Yesterday, the management of FRM II met for an exchange of information with representatives of the Gesellschaft für Zwischenlagerung (BGZ), members of the council and the administration of the city of Ahaus. [more]

Did Oviraptoridchicks hatch at the same time? Researchers at the University of Bonn and the TU Munich provide presumptive evidence [more]

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,... [more]
