Meet the Neutrons at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin: Learn how it is to live and research at BER II.
Slideshow: Construction of the infrastructure buildings
In 2014 the world's strongest magnet for neutron scattering was put into operation at HZB. The components were built and designed in five countries. The core was assembled at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida.

The neutron researchers: Neutrons are something special, because they can "look" into many materials without destruction. The "Neutron Man" shows what can be discovered with them and the scientists at BER II are exploring. (ger)
Alan Tennant explains what magnetic monopoles are, the most challenging aspects of the experimental setup for their observation at Berlin research reactor BER II, the significance of their discovery for future applications and the collaboration.
