Instruments at the MLZ

The instruments at the MLZ are operated by our cooperation partners the Technische Universität München (TUM), Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) and Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon (Hereon) 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.

At the moment, the neutron source FRM II is operated without Cold Source. Instruments always using thermal or hot neutrons for experiments remain unaffected. Instruments focussing on cold neutrons, however, expect a modified flux. The instruments’ web pages present the current parameters.
