BESSY II - Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) operates two scientific large-scale facilities for investigating the structure and function of matter: the research reactor BER II for experiments with neutrons, and the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II, which produces ultrabright photon beams ranging from Terahertz to hard X-rays. Due to this, HZB is one of the few centres world-wide to offer the whole range of instruments for neutron and synchrotron radiation within one laboratory structure. The new HZB strongly supports the complementary usage of neutrons and synchrotron radiation which is reflected in a joint user gateway.
