    Using antimatter to combat plastic waste

    Mountains of plastic waste are a global problem. The search for packaging alternatives is in full steam. At the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz research neutron source, a team of researchers has now studied the gas permeability of new types of biopolymers, with the help of antimatter.

    Dancing on dry land: How proteins stay active without water

    Proteins actually need water to perform their function. Looking more closely with neutrons, researchers have observed that it can also be done without water and how the oxygen-transporting muscle protein myoglobin moves in that case. Their results have now been published in the renowned journal Physical Review Letters.

    Strong weld joints for aerospace applications

    When a rocket is launched, the weld seams on the enormous fuel tanks must withstand immense forces. To produce joints with the necessary strength, a process known as “friction stir welding” is used. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are working to make this process more efficient. They are using positrons generated by the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) to precisely localize “atomic holes” in the material.

    A Life for Science

    Today, the namesake of the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) and the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) would have turned 110 years old. As the “father of the atomic egg” in Garching and founder of the international research institute Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, Heinz Maier-Leibnitz shaped modern neutron research like no one else.

The Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) offers special access to measurements with neutrons, which can provide important insights into the behaviour of the virus.

Scientists who want to use neutrons to study the corona virus SARS-CoV-2 or the disease COVID-19 will have special and privileged access. Guest scientists should apply directly to: useroffice@mlz-garching.de for the appropriate measurement time. A scientific evaluation of the application will be made as soon as possible.
