The German neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) is operated
260 days per year in cycles of 52 days each. 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.

   Next deadline for proposal submission is January, 26th 2007. 

Proposals for a long time period up to 3 years are accepted. They are
reviewed every 6 months, i.e. experimental reports are required for
the following proposal round. The review of the proposals will take
place on 23. February. Results of the referees will be online about
two weeks later. The experiments of the accepted proposals will start
from the 11th cycle, i.e. after the 29. March 2007.  The FRM-II is a
partner in the EU supported network of European neutron facilities
(NMI3 in FP6). 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. For the following
instruments applications can be submitted:

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

 Reseda, temporarily not available
 Spheres, backscattering spectrometer, cold source, (EU users please 
 contact JCNS)

Radiography and Tomography:
 Antares, radiography and tomography, cold source
 Nectar, radiography and tomography, fission neutron 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. 

In addition to the 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.
