SANS: a unique technique to look inside plants’ leaves
Small-angle neutron scattering enabled researchers to look inside intact leaves to learn how their structure and functions change when submitted to environmental changes.
Will we have stronger, enduring teeth? New material for tooth fillings is being investigated
Scientists used neutrons and X-rays to better understand the structure and hydration process of glass ionomer cements. This material is a promising alternative for dental fillings.
Superstructure in Heusler alloys discovered
Scientists determine the structure of shape memory alloys of nickel-manganese-indium. They have received NMI3 support to conduct experiments at MLZ through the Rapid Access Program.
Integrated User Access – deliverables and minutes
On the page of the Integrated User Access WP you can now find the reports delivered up to now as well as the minutes of the meeting held among Europe’s user offices.
The BER II neutron source is back in operation
Following the interruption in availability, users can now go to Berlin to conduct experiments.
Call for proposals at the LLB: deadline May 1
The next deadline for neutron beam time request to perform neutron scattering experiments at Laboratoire Leon Brillouin (CEA-Saclay, France) is May 1.
Call for nominations for the 7th Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Prize
Nominations of notable early career researchers will be receive until April 30.
