Focus of our work

Neutrons for Users - (C) W. Schürmann,TUM

Neutron for Users

We operate neutron scattering instruments at the best neutron sources in the world and we offer access to them for a large user community.

Neutron for Research

Neutron for Research

We use neutrons as microscopic probes to conduct research on soft and condensed matter, life science and energy materials.

Neutron Techniques

Neutron Techniques

We design, build and install new instruments and neutron sources at neutron facilities. With our research we push the boundaries of available techniques and develop new methods for research with neutrons.

Neubauten Garching

New Labs and Workshops Officially Opened for Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ)

Jülich/Garching, 22 October 2020 – Every year, up to 1,200 visiting scientists from all over the world come to the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching to perform measurements on its FRM II research neutron source. The Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Forschungszentrum Jülich, which is a cooperation partner of MLZ, are now expanding the research capacities of the world’s most versatile neutron source with two new buildings, which will provide 4,500 m² of space for laboratories, offices, and workshops. The buildings have now been officially opened with a (virtual) ceremony.


6th HBS Workshop 2020 moved to Virtual Workshop

The sixth international workshop on the topic of accelerator-based high brilliance neutron sources will take place as a virtual meeting via a web conference on the 17 - 18 September 2020 between 13:00 and 16:15 CET.
