Neutron Scattering


The outstation of GEMS at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum in Garching
near Munich is where HZG operates three instruments and a Materials
Science laboratory in the framework of a user service facility.

Due to the very high penetration of neutrons in most materials and to
the different contrasts they offer, neutron scattering is an excellent
complement to X-Ray techniques.

Our instrumental suite covers a broad range of applications ranging from
structural characterization at the unit cell level to large structures
in bulk materials as well as at interfaces.
