HZB - Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) operates two large scale scientific facilities for investigating the structure and function of matter:  the research reactor BER II, for experiments with neutrons, and the electron storage ring BESSY II, Germany’s only third generation XUV-light source with over 40 publicly accessible beam lines and stations.
Unique undulators provide circular and rotating-linear polarization; world record energy resolution (e.g. > 100.000 at 60 eV) has been demonstrated by BESSY II beamlines. Experimental facilities include state-of-the-art x-ray microscopy, x-ray polarimetry, spectromicroscopy, high-resolution photon and electron spectroscopy, nanotechnology (e.g. x-ray lithography), and pump-probe spectroscopy with temporal resolution ranging from 50ps down to 100fs (fs slicing). Recently, HZB has extended its suite of state-of-the-art experimental chambers for the studies of liquids by the new measuring chamber for x-ray emission spectroscopy of free micro-liquid jets, LiXEdrom.
