New center for neutron research in Germany: http://www.mlz-garching.de/englisch/news-und-media/news-articles/new-center-for-german-neutron-research.html?back=yes "TUM and Helmholtz Centers celebrate the founding of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum" also see: http://www.fz-juelich.de/SharedDocs/Pressemitteilungen/UK/EN/2013/13-02-21mlz.html
"The center is named after the German pioneer and mentor of neutron
research, Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (1911 - 2000). On his initiative and
under his guidance, the first neutron research reactor
(Forschungsreaktor Muenchen, FRM) in Garching was built and put into
operation in 1957. Heinz Maier-Leibnitz was also founding director of
the international high-flux reactor at the Institute Laue Langevin in
Grenoble, France. Until his retirement in 1974, Heinz Maier-Leibnitz was
professor for Technical Physics at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen
and director of the Forschungsreaktor Muenchen. From 1974 to 1979 he
was serving as president of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
The cooperation between the Technische Universitaet Muenchen and the
Helmholtz Centers started in 2011 and is additionally supported for ten
years by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with an
annual budget of 19.8 Million Euros. Under the auspices of the
Forschungszentrum Juelich, the Helmholtz Centers are financially
involved with 10.52 Million Euros per year. The TUM is still the sole
operator of the neutron source. The State of Bavaria funds reactor
operation and research with 25 Million Euros annually."
Welcome to the Future of Neutron Scattering in Canada
a grassroots, nonpartisan movement of ordinary Canadians
that emerged in response to the lack of commitment by federal government(s) to build a new research reactor in Canada for nearly 2 decades.
