HZB USER SERVICE
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) operates the large scale research facility BESSY II, a third generation synchrotron source. BESSY II provides ultrabright photon beams from the long wavelength Terahertz region to hard X-rays with complete control of the polarization of the radiation and energy range. In addition, HZB is home to a number of state-of-the-art on-site laboratories and CoreLabs. All research facilities are designed to serve researchers from universities, research institutions and industry.
SHUTDOWN - New supply technology ensures long-term operation
BESSY II light source recently started a four-month shutdown (May 2 to Aug. 28, 2022). During this period, the low voltage main distribution panel in the supply building outside the electron storage ring is being renovated. This will secure the long-term operation of BESSY II over the next decade (READ MORE).
