Welcome to the User Office!
The User Office organises the scientific use of the neutron research source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) at Garching. It also takes care of all needs of the scientists visiting the MLZ in the scope of their scientific work.
Each scientist who plans experiments with neutrons or positrons is invited to submit a proposal online. An international panel reviews the proposals received until the deadline twice a year and recommends the allocation of beam time. We provide this beam time for free, but there are conditions to obey. Therefore please get acquainted with our Terms of Reference.
We look forward to receiving your proposals and welcoming you at the MLZ!
We warmly invite you to the MLZ User Meeting 2022!
As usual, we invite our users warmly to the MLZ User Meeting on Dec 08th and 09th, 2022. After two years of online meetings, we are happy to see all of you face-to-face again! Discuss with instrument scientists and other users, learn news from the MLZ and present your projects!
All details can be found on the meeting’s web page.
MLZ organizes ECNS 2023!
