Our institute is responsible for two soft X-ray beamlines (U41-PEAXIS and U49/2-PGM-2), one infrared beamline (IRIS), and four experimental stations (LiXEdrom, SOL3PES, PEAXIS, THz/IR Spectroscopy & Microscopy) at the BESSY II synchrotron radiation source. In addition, we also run a laser laboratory at the Free University Berlin that provides femtosecond EUV laser pulses with photon energies up to 50 eV. A second laser lab is currently being constructed to generate tunable, ultrashort soft X-ray pulses with photon energies up to 600 eV. A theory group within our institute is in close collaboration with the experimental activities as well.
