Sixth Joint BER II and BESSY II User Meeting

The annual Joint HZB User Meetings will provide an overview of the many exciting and inspiring research results obtained at our facilities in the past year. The Sixth Joint BER II and BESSY II User Meeting will take place at Berlin-Adlershof from December 3rd to December 5th, 2014. The neutrons session will take place at Berlin-Wannsee on Wednesday, 3rd December, followed by Dinner at Café Jahn.

On Thursday morning, at WISTA, Bunsen Auditorium, Adlershof, Christof Wöll, KIT, will ask in his keynote lecture “What Supramolecular Chemistry can do for Solid State Physics?” The meeting continues with plenary talks, discussions, and a poster session, which will provide vast possibilities of information and discussion. In his public lecture, Christoph Lienau, University Oldenburg, will give an overview on “Solar cells and artificial light harvesting systems”.

Traditional highlights are the bestowals of the Prizes for Young Scientists donated by the “Freundeskreis Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin e. V. “

After hours of inspiring scientific presentations we hope to meet you Thursday evening at the Berliner Buffet. The buffet is sponsored by the companies participating in the accompanying vendor exhibition. As well as this generous gesture the exhibitors will be happy to have the opportunity to inform you on the latest developments in all fields of research equipment.

    Fertilisation under the X-ray beam
    After the egg has been fertilized by a sperm, the surrounding egg coat tightens, mechanically preventing the entry of additional sperm and the ensuing death of the embryo. A team from the Karolinska Institutet has now gained this new insight through measurements at the X-ray light sources BESSY II, DLS and ESRF.

    Neutron experiment at BER II reveals new spin phase in quantum materials
    New states of order can arise in quantum magnetic materials under magnetic fields. An international team has now gained new insights into these special states of matter through experiments at the Berlin neutron source BER II and its High-Field Magnet. BER II served science until the end of 2019 and has since been shut down. Results from data at BER II are still being published.
