Who are we and what do we do?
The department Scientific-Technical Infrastructure is composed of the following divisions; Technical User Support, Technical Design, Manufacturing and Electronics. The department is managed by Dr. Christian Jung.
The main task of the department Technical User Support is to provide technical infrastructure in order to reliably use BESSY II for experiments during beam time. Furthermore, the department procures and supplies liquid helium and nitrogen, as well as supports the work with hazardous substances and equipment.
The department of Technical Design is the central design department at the HZB. The entire internal demand for precision mechanical assemblies and product specifications is constructed with 3D-CAD-Systems. Projects are accompanied, in collaboration with internal and external manufacturers, until the delivery and implementation.
