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!

+++ Restrictions due to SARS-CoV-2 +++

At the moment, the User Office is a Home Office and can only be reached by email: useroffice@mlz-garching.de.

The start of cycle 48 is postponed until further notice. We will inform you once new dates are available!

Please stay healthy!

Rapid access for research on SARS-CoV-2

The MLZ has set up a rapid access for research on the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 with immediate effect. Please send an email to the User Office and explain your idea shortly. A scientific evaluation of the application will then take place as soon as possible.
