As a service group of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), we develop and maintain dedicated data-analysis software for the neutron scattering instruments at the research reactor FRM II in Garching near Munich, Germany.
We coordinate the standardisation of data formats. We support instrument scientists and their users in all questions related to data analysis.
All our software products are freely available as open source. We collaborate with other scattering centres in Europe, we participate the European consortium SINE2020, and we contribute in-kind to the European Spallation Source ESS.
[18dec20] There are two open positions in our group, for the further development of our reflectometry and scattering software BornAgain: https://www.fz-juelich.de/SharedDocs/Stellenangebote/_common/dna/2020-424-EN-JCNS-4.html
Our mission is the development, integration, and maintenance of data-analysis software for specific scattering techniques:
We also contribute generic open-source software:
Technical Notes of general interest:
Little command-line scripts for download:
Current staff members are listed here. Besides, our group hosts scientific guests and student interns.
Location of our offices, temporarily outside the FRM II site:
Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik Building D1 Boltzmannstraße 2 85748 Garching
Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH Jülich Centre for Neutron Science at MLZ Lichtenbergstraße 1 85748 Garching, Germany
At any moment, we offer interesting subjects for internships (Werkstudent, Studienarbeit, Praxissemester) and for theses (B. Sc., M. Sc., Ph. D.) in physics, numerical mathematics or computer science.
