Operating and continuously upgrading instruments at the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II

Quantum Phenomena in Novel Materials: Synchrotron instrumentation

The institute "Quantum Phenomena in Novel Materials" (EM-IQM) contributes to the program "From Materials to Matter and Life" (MML), topic "Research on Matter with Brilliant Light Sources", by operating and continuously upgrading two instruments at the synchrotron radiation source BESSY (LK II BESSY). The central experimental techniques employed at these instruments are circular dichroism and resonant elastic x-ray scattering. These stations complement the wide range of instruments for neutron scattering at the research reactor BER II, which are also operated by EM-IQM. All instruments are operated by scientists who pursue their own research projects in the fields of magnetism and superconductivity.
