User Office Photons

The User Office Photons provides assistance and support in all issues related to the use of the HZB User Facilities located at the Wilhelm-Conrad-Röntgen-Campus of HZB in Berlin-Adlershof:

  • MX-Laboratory

The assistance we offer ranges from planning an experiment and preparing a beamtime application to registration, safety training, accomodation and subsistence. The reception of the User Office is located on the 1st floor of the BESSY II main building by the cafeteria. The reception has regular opening hours Monday to Friday from 9:00 - 11:30 and from 12:30 - 15:30.
In order for your check-in to run as smoothly as possible, we ask you to submit the Application for Badge & Dosimeter Form which is available via the General Access Tool GATE at least 3 weeks prior to your arrival. Please note that new users have to register in GATE before being able to access the form.

Please note:

Users are required to check in at the User Office Photons prior to any activity at HZB.

Users arriving after working hours (or during the weekend) are requested to contact the User Office Photons 48 hours before arrival on site (Thursday morning for weekend arrival) in order to arrange for temporary access to the facility.
