Projects for the future

HZB operates two large scale scientific facilities for investigating the structure and function of matter:  the research reactor BER II, for experiments with neutrons, and the electron storage ring BESSY II. Both facilities provide research opportunities for the study of matter and provide a highly specialised sample environment in which experiments can be carried out under the most sophisticated conditions (high magnetic fields, low temperatures, high pressure).

Topics which contribute to the development of instrumentation and methods, particularly within materials research and analysis, are a major area of investigation.
