    Smart bottle brushes

    They look like microscopic bottle brushes: Polymers with a spine and tufts of side arms. This molecular design gives them unusual abilities: For example, they can bind active ingredients and release them again when the temperature changes. With the help of neutrons at the MLZ, a research team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now succeeded to unveil the changes in the internal structure in course of the process.

    Strengthening of neutron research in Garching

    Every year, up to 1,200 guest scientists from all over the world come to perform measurements at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Research Neutron Source (FRM II). Technical University Munich (TUM) and Forschungszentrum Jülich are now expanding the research capacities of the world’s most versatile neutron source with two new buildings providing a total of 4,550 square meters of floor space for laboratories, offices and workshops.

    The magic is in the details: Luminous protein decoded more precisely

    The green fluorescent protein GFP is of immense importance as a luminous marker in the cell. At the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Center (MLZ), Japanese researchers investigated the position of hydrogen atoms in the coloring components of the protein, which enables the development of new marker proteins.

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.
