Dear user of FRM II,

We like to remind you to apply for beam time at the German neutron
source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II). Proposals can be submitted any
time via our user portal http://user.frm2.tum.de. They are reviewed
twice a year. Please register in the user office. With your personal
account you can access the proposal and reporting system and get
additional informations and guidance to perform experiments at the FRM II.

Deadline for proposal submission is October 8th,2010.

The review of the proposals will take place on November, 26th 2010.
Results of the referees will be online about two weeks later.

Please note: Due to the refurbishment of the positron source, the
reactor operation will be limited in 2010. We are planning to run 3,5
cycles in order to deliver 203 days of beam time for scientific and
industrial applications. The work will start in October 2010 and will
last till spring 2011.

The FRM II is a partner in the EU supported network of European neutron
facilities (NMI3). Researchers working in EU Member States or Associated
States other than Germany can apply for travel and subsistence

To ensure the feasibility of the proposed experiment please contact the
instrument scientist well in advance. Please find all details at


For the following instruments applications can be submitted:


Heidi: single crystal diffractometer, hot source
PoliHeid: polarized hot neutron diffractometer, hot source
Resi: single crystal diffractometer, thermal source
Spodi: powder diffractometer, thermal source
Stress-Spec: material-science diffractometer, thermal source
Mira: reflectometer with long wave length neutrons
N-Rex+: reflectometer for material science, cold source
Refsans: time-of-flight reflectometer for soft matter, cold source


Trisp: three-axis spectrometer with Spin-Echo, thermal source
Puma: three-axis spectrometer, thermal source
Panda: three-axis spectrometer, cold source
TofTof: time-of-flight spectrometer, cold source
Reseda: resonance spin-echo spectrometer, cold source

Radiography and Tomography:

Antares: radiography and tomography, cold source (reduced beam time due to refurbishment of the positron source)
Nectar: radiography and tomography, fission neutron source

PGAA: prompt gamma-activation analysis


positron beam ("open beam port")
positron auger spectrometer ("PAES")
positron defect spectrometer ("Coincidence doppler broadening")
positron life time spectroscopy ("PLEPS")
(reduced beam time due to refurbishment of the positron source)

Particle physics:

Mephisto: neutron beam cold source for special experiments

Details of the instruments and sample environment available can be obtained from our Internet site  http://www.frm2.tum.de

The beam time of the FRM II on the instruments of the JCNS facility hosted at FRM II neutron source in Garching are distributed through the JCNS proposal system at http://fzj.frm2.tum.de (deadline October 8th 2010) for the instruments KWS-2, KWS-3, J-NSE, DNS, MARIA and SPHERES and CRG beam time at JCNS instruments at ILL and SNS for German users.

In addition to beam tube experiments irradiation facilities are available for neutron activation analysis, isotope production and silicon doping. Altogether 17 irradiation channels are available for scientific and industrial applications.

We look forward getting your proposals,
best regards from Garching,
