Our institute is responsible for one infrared beamline (IRIS) and its associated experimental station THz/IR Spectroscopy & Microscopy at the BESSY II synchrotron radiation source. In addition, we also run two laser laboratories at the HZB that provides femtosecond EUV laser pulses with photon energies up to 50 eV. A second laser lab is currently being constructed to generate tunable, ultrashort soft X-ray pulses with photon energies up to 600 eV. A theory group within our institute is in close collaboration with the experimental activities as well.
