Instrumentation, Infrastructure & Techniques

Our institute operates four user-accessible experimental stations (LiXEdrom, LiquidPES, PEAXIS, THz/IR Spectroscopy & Microscopy) dedicated to our research interests. In addition, our team is responsible for two soft-X-ray beamlines (U41, U49/2-PGM-2) and one infrared beamline (IRIS) at the BESSY II synchrotron radiation source. We also operate an ultrafast laser laboratory that incorporates a monochromatised high harmonic generation (HHG) beamline at the Free University Berlin, providing femtosecond EUV laser pulses with photon energies up to 50 eV. A second ultrafast laser lab is currently being constructed to generate tunable, monochromatised ultrashort soft X-ray pulses with photon energies up to 600 eV. Our activities are supported by our recently established young-investigator theory research group and through collaborations with external theory groups.
