    Neutron imaging detector in handbag size

    The Covid-19 pandemic has not been making things easy for researchers either. But a scientist from the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) and a doctoral student at the training reactor in Prague did not let lockdowns and travel restrictions get them down: Using video calls, they teamed up to build a portable, highly sensitive neutron detector.

    Optimization of mRNA containing nanoparticles

    The research neutron source Hein Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is playing an important role in the investigation of mRNA nanoparticles similar to the ones used in the Covid-19 vaccines from vendors BioNTech and Pfizer. Researchers at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) used the high neutron flux available in Garching to characterize various formulations for the mRNA vaccine and thus to lay the groundwork for improving the vaccine’s efficacy.

    Software from Garching goes global

    NICOS is the link between the scientific instruments and visiting researchers during neutron experiments. The software, originally developed at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Center (MLZ), is now in demand worldwide and is increasingly expanding its user community.

    Active User Meeting

    The User Meeting 2021 showed that the users of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum are very active even without neutrons. From new materials for lithium-ion batteries and cancer therapeutics made by FRM II to a new deuteration service at the MLZ, the more than 130 talks and posters offered a lot of innovation. And despite the digital format, personal exchange was possible in the interactive “Ask the Instrument” sessions.

From Behind The Sciences

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.
