CoreLabs: Core HZB laboratories for international users and industry

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) will be setting up CoreLabs a new multi-user platform also available for external academic and industrial partners. These new CoreLabs are complex infrastructures with unique and state-of-the-art equipment. The main purpose of these CoreLabs is research and development of innovative energy materials.

Overview: CoreLabs at the HZB

X-Ray Corelab

The X-Ray CoreLab has rooms in Wannsee and Adlershof, equipped with several modernised diffractometers. It has been in operation since March 2016. X-ray diffractometry is one of the most important analytical methods in materials research. At the HZB, it is used to develop new materials for energy conversion or storage. These methods are suitable for thin-film analysis and the analysis of powder samples and single crystals. Two highlights among the equipment are the MetalJet high flow sources. These deliver especially intense X-ray light with excellent brilliancy. → X-Ray Corelab

Hybrid Silicon Perovskite Research, Integration & Novel Technologies (HySPRINT)

Our newest member of the CoreLab platform the Helmholtz Innovation Lab HySPRINT (Hybrid Silicon Perovskite Research, Integration & Novel Technologies) is still under construction. HySPRINT has the objective to develop new material combinations and processes for energy applications. → HySPRINT

CoreLab Quantum Materials

The CoreLab Quantum Materials offers a suite of instruments and methods for the synthesis and the investigation of new materials relevant for energy and information technologies. The methods are quite general and can be applied to many other material classes. This CoreLab makes them available to external scientists and also commercial users. → CoreLab Quantum Materials
