Projects, Cooperations & Networks

Our expertise in x-ray optics instrumentation and metrology and in micro- and nanotechnology is expressed by cooperations with other research institutes and industrial partners and by large-scale projects funded internally or externally. Currently we are setting up a technology centre for the production of high-quality reflection gratings for soft x-ray radiation and their in-situ (at-wavelength) and ex-situ characterisation. We are engaged in the source simulation, beamline design and beam diagnostic tools of the XFEL-project at DESY in Hamburg.
