FRM II offers guided tours for students

The Research Neutron Source Heinz-Maier Leibnitz (FRM II) offers all physics students the possibility to gain deeper insight into the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz.

Neutrons for research, industry and medicine

The Research Neutron Source Heinz-Maier Leibnitz (FRM II) is a central scientific institute of the Technische Universität München (TUM) with approximately 400 staff members in administration, operations and research. Around 30% of the approx. 3000 visitors per year are students. In a year, over 1000 scientists, of these about 200 doctoral candidates, use the experimental possibilities at Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ).

Apart from the tours for general public and students, the FRM II offers special guided tours for physics students, in which their prior knowledge and special interests can be considered, thus allowing a deeper look into this fascinating large-scale research facility on the campus.
