Workshop BESSY VSR

Scientists will discuss the novel approach "BESSY VSR" to create long and short photon pulses simultaneously for all beam lines in the Storage Ring BESSY II.

Scientists will discuss the novel approach "BESSY VSR" to create long and short photon pulses simultaneously for all beam lines in the Storage Ring BESSY II.

On October 14-15, 2013 the BESSY VSR - Workshop "The Variable pulse length Synchrotron Radiation source" will be held at the Wilhelm-Conrad Röntgen Campus of the HZB in the lecture hall of BESSY II. We would kindly like to invite you to take part and discuss the unique science possibilities that BESSY VSR can provide. 

BESSY VSR is a novel approach to create in the Storage Ring BESSY II long and short photon pulses simultaneously for all beam lines through a pair of superconducting bunch compression cavities. BESSY VSR represents also a missing link between the extreme average brilliance of ultimate storage rings like PETRA III and Free Electron Lasers.

With the BESSY VSR workshop "The variable pulse length Synchrotron Radiation source" the HZB opens for the first time a public debate on BESSY VSR.

Your input to BESSY VSR is very welcome and highly appreciated. We kindly invite you to discuss the BESSY VSR with us in our blogg.

    40 years of research with synchrotron light in Berlin
    Press release _ Berlin, 14 September: For decades, science in Berlin has been an important driver of innovation and progress. Creative, talented people from all over the world come together here and develop new ideas from which we all benefit as a society. Many discoveries – from fundamental insights to marketable products – are made by doing research with synchrotron light. Researchers have had access to this intense light in Berlin for 40 years. It inspires many scientific disciplines and is an advantage for Germany.
