Scientists are looking for an alternative superalloy as a gas turbine material. Lukas Karge studied a hot candidate for his PhD thesis with Dr. habil. Ralph Gilles at the MLZ.
Neutrons are produced at large research infrastructures. Researchers use them to look inside materials. With neutrons one can e.g. look inside a car engine, investigate drug delivery, see how plants uptake water, get insights into the development of superconductors.

Just how lupines draw water approaching their roots in soil has now for the first time been observed in three dimensions by a University of Potsdam team at the HZB-BER II neutron source in Berlin.
Scientists from EPFL and PSI have shown experimentally, for the first time, a quantum phase transition in strontium copper borate.
Thanks to a new material developed by researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and Empa, electrolysers are likely to become cheaper and more efficient in the future.
Recently, Michael Laaß could clarify the possible function of an enigmatic impression in the braincase of the forerunners of mammals by means of neutron tomography at the instrument ANTARES of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum.
