Neutrons unveil a promising alternative for natural gas storage and transportation
Thanks to NMI3 support, for the first time researchers create artificial methane hydrates in just a few minutes.
How does an enzyme detoxify the cells of living beings?
Scientists use neutrons to shed light on the reduction of H2O2 to water by CcP, concluding that the process which is focus of a long-standing and highly contentious question need to be reassessed.
How to optimise multi-channel neutron focusing guides for extreme sample environments?
NMI3 collaboration works on simulations to find the best possible guide for experiments at low temperatures and high magnetic fields.
REMINDER: The deadline for the 14th Oxford School on Neutron Scattering is the 1st of May.
Thanks to NMI3, a number of European students can have their expenses covered to attend the school. You can apply until the 1st of May.
REMINDER: Dates announced for the 2015 PSI summer school
Apply for a NMI3 grant to learn about Spectroscopy with Neutrons, Muons and Photons on the Swiss alps. The deadline is April 30.
Call for Proposals for the PSI-SINQ cycle II/15
The deadline for neutron proposals submissions at PSI is May 15. NMI3 supports researchers for experiments conducted between September 1 and December 23.
Baton change at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum
Prof. Thomas Brückel will be the new Director of the MLZ, taking over from Prof. Dieter Richter.
