    To the tumor via magnet

    Biocompatible iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) offer great potential for biomedical applications, both in terms of imaging and therapy. More rapid progress in researching IONPs now looks promising by using a new method combination developed by a team of Jülich researchers using neutrons at the MLZ as a probe.

    Nanomaterial fights back against resistant bacteria

    Significant amounts of antibiotic residues and pathogens enter the environment via our wastewater. A German Italian team of researchers has now investigated a novel nanomaterial that has an antibacterial effect and can bind antibiotics at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum. Wastewater could thus be treated more effectively and safely.

    Making the gray cells happy

    Depressive disorders are among the most frequent illnesses worldwide. The causes are complex and to date only partially understood. The trace element lithium appears to play a role. Using neutrons of the research neutron source at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), a research team has now proved that the distribution of lithium in the brains of depressive people is different from the distribution found in healthy humans.

    Towards 3D storage elements with high data density

    Scientists at Jülich, together with their international colleagues, have now shed light on the switching mechanism of an oxide-based synthetic antiferromagnet. They also showed how this material could enable vertical data transfer, thus making it possible to develop three-dimensional storage elements with high data density. The researchers conducted their studies with the help of the neutron reflectometer MARIA, operated by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching, along with similar instruments in other European neutron facilities.

Annual Report 2020

Next-generation lithium-ion batteries, the early development of the solar system, biopolymers from wood as an alternative to fossil resources and research into molecular mechanisms of aggressive diseases such as multiple sclerosis are topics of this year’s Scientific Highlights.

In addition to the science, the annual report offers facts and figures about the MLZ and the FRM II.

Rapid access for research on coronavirus SARS-CoV-2

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.
