Maier-Leibnitz-Laboratory (MLL)

The Maier-Leibnitz Laboratory (MLL) is designated as a central academic institution of LMU Munich and is the successor to the Accelerator Laboratory. It is run jointly by LMU Munich and the Technische Universität München for research and instruction in the field of nuclear, particle, and accelerator physics as well as for applications in other fields of science, technology, and medicine. The MLL operates a Tandem-van-de-Graaff accelerator that accelerates atomic nuclei at high velocity with a direct current of up to 14 million volts at its site in Garching near Munich and is used for research in the areas of nuclear physics, nuclear astrophysics, material analysis, and radiation biology and medicine. The MLL supports research in the clusters of excellence "Origin and Structure of the Universe" and "Munich Center for Advanced Photonics". In this context, new infrastructures, namely a source for ultracold neutrons at the neutron source FRM II and a center for applications of laser-accelerated ion beams, will be constructed.
