EDDI Workshop

Date: 14th of December, 2017

Venue: HZB, BESSY Lecture Hall, Albert-Einstein-Str. 15, 12489 Berlin-Adlershof, Germany

After 14 years of successful user operation EDDI will shutdown in August 2018. We decided to take this as an occasion to organize an EDDI (farewell) workshop which will take place on 14 December 2017 as a satellite meeting of the HZB user meeting. We are pleased that we succeeded in attracting prominent speakers from our faithful EDDI user community who will report about their scientific work and experiences gathered during their beamtime at our synchrotron beamline. We also would like to take the opportunity to discuss the future options to continue user service and scientific collaborations in the field of hard X-ray research at HZB. more

The workshop will cover recent progress in research and development of photocathodes for accelerator applications. Contributions are invited from all related topics, including operational experience, preparation, and analytical methods including instrumentation as well as theoretical modelling, industrial applications, and novel materials.

Seit 2002 gibt es bei BESSY "Physik zum Frühstück", eine leichtverdauliche Physikvorlesung für Jedermann und Jederfrau. Aber keine Sorge: auch bei BESSY gibt es Physik nicht auf nüchternen Magen. Bevor es losgeht, können sich Besucher an Bagels, Kaffee und Tee laben. Gestärkt beginnt dann der Ausflug in die Welt des Lichtes.

The school is intended for students in chemistry, physics, and physical chemistry who are interested in the application of photon-based spectroscopic methods in order to characterize the electronic and vibrational structure of matter. The number of participants is limited to 20.

Global demand for photovoltaic systems is rising sharply. CIGS thin-film modules have become a hot topic for the solar industry. International experts will convene in Stuttgart on May 30, 2017, at the annual IW-CIGSTech workshop to discuss past and potential future technical and industrial advances in this solar technology.

Perspectives for energy and materials science research with large scale facilities

In October 2016 the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) signed an umbrella Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to merge former independent efforts, provide principles for cooperation and establish scientific collaborations and staff exchange in the field of energy materials research with – but not only – advanced analytics and large scale facilities.
