Who we are – a one minute film


Short films and animations

An ongoing series of short films and animations about our BESSY II Synchrotron and its wide-reaching use.

Tour of BESSY II: Ingo Müller takes the visitors into the world of the electron accelerator BESSY II, where there is not only a lot of high-tech but also some experiments to marvel at.


BESSY II: what can I co for you? Serving coffee and fresh photons since 1998


Acceleration physicists have presented an exciting option: they set up a "second track" for the electrons, thus making one light source and one measuring station practically two. (2019) (ger)


BESSY VSR: The upgrade from BESSY II - brilliant long pulses and short pulses of high energy for time-resolved observations .


To implement BESSY VSR, the project team still has to solve some tricky problems. Accelerator physicist Paul Goslawski and his colleagues show with this little performance, what can happen.
