Research Infrastructure

Berlin Electron Storage Ring for SYnchrotron Radiation

Description The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie HZB operates two large scale research facilities: the upgraded medium flux research reactor BER II on the Lise-Meitner-Campus in Berlin-Wannsee and the third generation synchrotron source BESSY II on the Wilhelm-Conrad-Röntgen- Campus in Berlin-Adlershof. Those research facilities are designed to serve researchers from universities, foreign research institutions and industry. The storage ring BESSY II provides ultrabright photon beams from the Terahertz region to hard X-rays with complete control of the polarization of the radiation and energy range. More than 50 beamlines offer a multi-faceted mixture of experimental opportunities at undulator, wiggler and dipole sources with excellent energy resolution. The combination of brightness and time resolution makes BESSY II the ultimate microscope for space and time, since both femtosecond time and nanometer spatial resolutions are available. The synchrotron radiation source BESSY II provides 25% of the XUV-infrastructure in Europe and because of the radiometry activities of the Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt, BESSY II is the European calibration standard for electromagnetic radiation.
