Applications in Medicine, Biology and Material Science
The Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET) displays regions with larger metabolic activity (lighter spots). Today photon, ion and neutron beams are regularly used to treat tumors. Modern research in the field of the medical diagnostic based on the very modern detector technology and that utilize ion and neutron beams for application in biophysics and for the study of different materials are further example of these kind of applications.
MLL Particle Accelerator
The Maier Leibnitz Lab (MLL) is dedicated to experimental and theoretical research and teaching in the area of nuclear and particle physics. It contributes with important developments of many experiments, which are carried out at large scale facilities such as CERN, the underground lab at Gran Sasso in Italy and GSI in Darmstadt.more
