From now on all HZB scientists as well as visiting scientists can use the X-ray diffractometry equipment at the X-ray CoreLab. External scientists can apply for instrument time and use the X-ray CoreLab beginning in 2017.

Locations in Wannsee and Adlershof

The X-ray CoreLab provides a variety of modern X-ray diffractometers at HZB locations Adlershof (WCR) and Wannsee (LMC). An outstanding feature of the X-ray CoreLab is the in-situ analysis of structural phase transitions, the investigation of structure, microstructure and texture of thin layers, as well as the analysis of internal tensions in materials. The X-ray CoreLab also has two MetalJet high-flux X-ray sources which are currently under commissioning. These high-flux sources provide intense X-ray light with a high brilliance and will open up new perspectives in materials research.

If you want to use one of our X-ray CoreLab instruments, we kindly ask you to register as an X-ray CoreLab user. The X-ray CoreLab website provides information about the specifications of the instruments as well as the contact persons.
