MLZ is a cooperation between:> Technische Universität München> Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht> Forschungszentrum Jülich
The instruments at the MLZ are operated by our cooperation partners the Technische Universität München (TUM), Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) together with the Max-Planck-Society (MPG). These partners, together with associated groups from German universities, are continuously working to bring about improvements in the performance of the instruments. The result is a suite of world-class instruments available for the benefit of scientific users around the world.
The instrument scientists are supported by an array of service teams for the sample environments, neutron optics, detectors, instrument control systems and software as well as the user office. In addition, several laboratories specializing in sample preparation and characterization are available to serve the special scientific requirements of the users.
Especially, the transmission electron microscope TEM and the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system may be booked in combination with neutron experiment proposals for transmission electron microscopy and fabrication of high-quality thin films, respectively.
The neutron source FRM II offers the widest spectrum of neutrons in the world, ranging from ultra-cold, and cold neutrons, through to thermal and hot neutrons and the fast neutrons from the converter facility. Consequently, the energy spectrum on offer covers a range of 15 orders of magnitude, from neV to MeV.
