Virtual tours

The HZB in 360 degrees 

Start your tour

Start your tour in the control room

Due to Corona, it is currently not possible to welcome groups of visitors at HZB and guide them through the facility. Nevertheless, we would like to open our doors virtually for you and provide insights into research at HZB. Make yourself comfortable and start your own virtual tour through BESSY II. Move through 360-degree images, have a look and linger at selected stations.


Tours Adlershof location

The most important "tool" in Adlershof is the X-ray source BESSY II, which provides intense light in the soft X-ray range. Researchers use it to study the structure of energy and quantum materials and how they function. In addition to BESSY II, HZB operates an extensive laboratory infrastructure. The laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments and devices. For example, the Energy Materials In-situ Laboratory is directly connected to the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II. It is home to the HZB's Energy Materials Research Laboratory and CAT, the Catalysis Laboratory for Sustainable Energy Supply.
 
Have fun with the digital tours!

Tours Wannsee site

At the HZB Wannsee site, for example, we are investigating novel catalyst materials needed for the generation of hydrogen with sunlight or the electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels. We are working on better battery systems and analyzing materials with different X-ray methods. In cooperation with the Berlin Charité, we offer eye tumor therapy with protons, which takes place at a particle accelerator. Take a look around our laboratories and discover how we do research. A blue sign in the 360° panoramas points to video clips or graphics showing important processes.

Enjoy the digital tours!


More panoramas

Some of the HZB's research facilities can be visited as 360-degree panoramas. These panoramas do not contain any explanations and are mainly available to our researchers and cooperation partners for guided tours or lectures.
