Scientific-Technical expertise on high-end sample environment including high magnetic fields, ultra low temperatures and precise temperature control, controlled gas environments, in-situ chemical reactions and excellent user service

Sample Environments: Research on matter with brilliant light sources

SE at BESSY-II

Sample Environment at BESSY-II: Consulting, design and construction of equipment,  providing experimental infrastructure and user service at beamlines for scheduled devices.

The sample environment group at the HZB has gained international reputation in the neutron scattering community by its scientific and technical expertise on high-end sample environment including

  • high magnetic fields,
  • ultra low temperatures,
  • precise temperature control,
  • controlled gas environments,
  • in-situ chemical reactions.

On the other hand the sample environment group is known for its excellent user service, playing an active role during the preparation and the realization of the experiments at BER II.

The expertise and the resources of the sample environment department have been used more and more for experiments at BESSY II as well. Already existing projects of the sample environment group at BESSY II like environments for in-situ gas atmospheres and adsorption will be strengthened in the future. The expertise of the group in development of sample environment for high magnetic fields, low temperature, and bio-soft matter is continuously used for the development of new experimental setups for BESSY II.

We established dedicated local sample environment group at BESSY II being involved in the design and construction of new experiments and in the user service at BESSY II. The goal is to further improve the scientific infrastructure and to strengthen the user service at BESSY II.
