More Space for Neutron Research
Garching/Jülich, 20 February 2017 – More instruments, more employees, and more visiting scientists – the cooperation between Forschungszentrum Jülich, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht on the scientific use of Germany’s most powerful research neutron source (FRM II) has been growing steadily for years. An official ground-breaking ceremony was held today at Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching near Munich for the construction of two new buildings that are to serve the much increased need for space there.

Research with Neutrons

Neutrons are neutral particles. Together with protons, they are the building blocks of the atomic nuclei. Neutrons weigh slightly more than the positively charged protons. More


H/D Contrast Variation

Many elements have several stable isotopes. They are chemically identical since they have the same number of protons. However, they differ in the number of neutrons in the atomic nucleus.More


ESS Department of Instrumentation

The European Spallation Source ESS is a next-generation neutron research centre in Lund, Sweden. When it commences operations in 2019, it will be the most powerful neutron source in the world. In the ESS Department of Instrumentation, concepts for instruments at the ESS are being developed. More
