Technical Tours

The technical visits will take place on Thursday 26 May 2016.

Technical Tour to the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin

The Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin operates two scientific large-scale facilities for research on the structure and function of matter: research reactor BER II for neutron experiments and synchrotron radiation source BESSY II, which generates highly brilliant synchrotron radiation from the terahertz to the X-ray spectrum. Both facilities are equipped with highly specialized sample environments. Experiments can be performed under the most sophisticated conditions like high magnetic fields, extremely low temperatures, or high pressures. The instruments’ continued refinement at the two large-scale facilities is one the Center’s main jobs.

The tour will focus on the Lise-Meitner-Campus and the Neutron Scattering Experiments at the BER II Research Reactor.
