German federal government bolsters neutron research in Garching
Date:12/17/2010

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will fund the scientific use of the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) by German and international researchers to the tune of 198 million euros over the next ten years. The Helmholtz Research Centers Juelich, Berlin, and Geesthacht are contributing a further 105.2 million euros from their budgets. The basis for these grants is the cooperation between the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) as operator of the FRM II and the Helmholtz Centers leading to joint scientific use of the neutron source.

The framework for this cooperation is set out in an administrative agreement between the German Federal Government and the State of Bavaria. The head of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts, Dr. Friedrich Wilhelm Rothenpieler, and the head of the Department for Basic Research at the BMBF, Dr. Karl Eugen Huthmacher, signed the agreement today in Garching. The cooperation contract itself was also signed today by TUM President Professor Wolfgang A. Herrmann, Member of the Board of the Forschungszentrum Juelich Professor Ulrich Krafft, Scientific Director of the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht Professor Wolfgang Kaysser, and Scientific Director of the Helmholtz Center Berlin Professor Anke Pyzalla-Kaysser.

The contract stipulates that the German Federal Government will finance the scientific use of the FRM II via the Helmholtz Centers with 19.8 million euros per year. In addition, the three Helmholtz Centers under the auspices of the Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZ Juelich) will invest 10.52 million euros annually for neutron research. The contract will run over a period of ten years.

Neutrons are used to conduct research on the functions of complex materials such as proteins, superconductors, and materials for energy storage. "The multifaceted capabilities of the Garching neutron source will attain a new quality through the cooperation between the TUM, as
