HZB Dates

Prof. Dr. Rolf Hilgenfeld

As of July 20, 2020, BESSY II will be down for several weeks. In the summer shutdown, important components in the experimental hall will be replaced and overhauled. The shutdown lasts until September 20 (access without dosimeter is possible until September 13).

User operation will recommence on October 12.

The HZB X-ray Corelab kindly offers the 3rd X-ray school for Master and PhD students at Lise-Meitner-Campus.

The aim of the course is to train participants in various X-ray diffraction methods that they can apply them in their current scientific project. The school will focus on phase analysis applying crystallographic databases, crystal structure analysis at ambient and non-ambient conditions.

Am 26. März 2020 ist wieder Girls'Day – Mädchen-Zukunftstag! An diesem Tag erleben Schülerinnen von Klasse 5 bis 10 die Welt der Technik, des Handwerks, der Ingenieur- und Naturwissenschaften.

Auch das Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin wird an den Standorten Wannsee und Adlershof wieder verschiedene Workshops zum Girls’Day anbieten.

BESSY II offers priority fast track access for projects related to SARS-CoV-2. Contact us by email to make use of fast track access.

Eine Anmeldung ist bis zum 2. Februar 2020 möglich.

Solar modules could also cover a considerable proportion of the energy requirements in cities - especially if the surfaces on the facades are also used in future. For this purpose, there are now a large number of aesthetically attractive facade solutions that also convert scattered light into electricity and are available in many colors and shapes. More and more solutions are emerging from research

This cost-free workshop is aimed at providing a platform for scientific exchange between research and industry in the field of direct hydrogen production from sunlight. The project partners will report on their results and in addition, renowned experts in the field will give presentations. Registration is open from now until 2 nd

Proteins are the building blocks of life - whether in humans, animals, plants, bacteria or viruses - every cell needs many different proteins to function. These are huge molecules with a complex three-dimensional structure characterized by cavities, loops and branches. Some proteins cause damage in the organism, so it would be good to block them. This can be achieved by active ingredients, chemical

Mit der Energiewende findet in der Bundesrepublik eine Zäsur statt: Ein beispielloser Strukturwandel in der Energiewirtschaft und eine Neuausrichtung von Industriezweigen stehen neben der Aufgabe von Politik, die Partizipation der Bevölkerung am Projekt Energiewende zu integrieren. RSBK begleitet den Prozess mit der Konferenz "Energie-Dialog" seit sechs

We are happy to announce the first HZB Machine Learning Summer School & Hackathon 2020, which will be held virtual. We want to bring together master and PhD students from computer science/informatics with early career scientists (Ph.D. to early Postdoc) from large-scale facility-based research centers. Use cases range from multi-parameter optimization of highly complex state-of-the-art research

IW-CISTech has been an important annual international workshop focusing on CIGS solar cell technology since 2010, combining scientific and technological aspects with their industrial applications. The program is made of invited talks, discussions, poster presentations and lab tours and lots of discussion and networking opportunities. It will take place on 22nd and 23rd June 2020

Dear Chalcogenide Experts,

We hope that you are in good health. Due to travelling restrictions, almost all Chalcogenide PV related meetings planned in spring and summer had to be cancelled.

To keep scientific discussions and knowledge exchange in our community alive we have decided to organize the first

Virtual Chalcogenide PV Conference (vCPVC 2020) from 25th The sessions will take place at CET business times.

We would like to cover various topics within the conference such as:
 • Progress in research and manufacturing of CIGS and related compounds • CdTe • Kesterite • New chalcogenide materials such as for example Sb2S(e)3 • Wide bandgap chalcogenide materials • Tandem devices  • Buffer layers

In addition, the program will cover important advancements in characterization, modelling and theory.
We also look forward to contributions from industry in the field.

The program will be posted shortly on the conference website.

The conference will be free of charge, however pre-registration is mandatory as the number of participants is limited. Registration will be available soon. We will keep you updated.

Please save the date and feel free to spread the word in the chalcogenide community.

Best regards,

The vCPVC 2020 Organizing Committee

Welcome to the HZB Photon School 2020, to be held in the Wilhelm-Conrad-Röntgen-Campus (Berlin-Adlershof) from 9th to 20th March, 2020.

This school is primarily aimed at master students and early stage researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, life or environmental sciences. Students will be introduced to synchrotron and laboratory-based

The two-week program consists of basic and specialized lectures including exercises, given by experienced teachers , who are HZB scientists or BESSY II super-users from our partner universities and research centers. The second week is dedicated to hands-on training at several BESSY II experimental stations and X-ray laboratories . Participants will get a vivid experience by joining up to two experiments to work in small groups. The second week's activities will teach participants how to collect, analyze, interpret and present own data amongst peers and specialists.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin!

What is ultraviolet radiation? What is X-rays used for? And what is radioactivity again? These questions are on the curriculum in physics lessons, but vivid experiments on these topics are rare. The Röntgenmobil offers such experiments to school classes in March in the HZB school lab (book dates in advance!). All interested parties are invited to attend on 12 March. 

Speaker: PD Dr. Thomas Dittrich / Prof. Klaus Lips
