DEGAS - Laboratory for Gas Adsorption Measurements

In 2006 the Hahn-Meitner-Institute Berlin started establishing a dedicated sample environment, answering the strongly increased requests on neutron scattering experiments combined with in-situ gas adsorption measurements.  Due to the complexity of sample preparation and characterization in this type of investigations, it appeared reasonable to offer the suite of the modular experimental set-ups also for preliminary and completing measurements "off-beam" in the laboratory. After the unification of the HMI with the Berlin synchrotron BESSY-II to the present Helmholz-Zentrum Berlin, parts of the gas adsorption sample environments have been modified for in-situ investigations with x-rays.
