Contributions to the science-driven development and realisation of innovative concepts for instrumentation and accelerator technology

Scientific-Technical Infrastructure 1: Research on matter with brilliant light sources

The operation of BESSY II at top level is strongly supported by a demand-oriented scientific-technical infrastructure, contributing to the science-driven development and realisation of innovative concepts for instrumentation and accelerator technology (e.g. superconducting cavities). Furthermore, the scientific-technical infrastructure is involved in efforts for a continuous upgrading of storage ring and instrumentation and helps to ensure a reliable operation of BESSY II. This implies contributions to the setup of facilities for testing cavities as well as the deployment of tools for simulation and design in the electronic domain. Sample Environment has significantly expanded its user support at BESSY II, providing an increasing variety of equipment dedicated for the experimental stations. Outstanding examples to be applied at BESSY II are the development of the cryostat for the PINK beamline and modular sample environments for in-situ gas adsorption, temperature regulation and liquid cells. In addition Sample Environment is significantly involved in operation and advancement of the complementary laboratories (DEGAS and the Bulk Properties Lab included in the Core Lab Quantum Materials) which are dedicated to sample characterization and preparation purposes for HZB users. Continuous research and development as well as international collaborations keep Sample Environment at HZB on an internationally edge-leading level.
