    Pillar of the frost

    Two huge Helium tanks are chilling in BESSY´s garden for more than five years already, awaiting their job-to-do when the new bERLinPro energy recovery project starts to run. Today a third huge item burst the scene: An 18 meters Nitrogen tank arrived from Czech Republic, coming in here in the morning hours. The driver must have been a guy from hell: [...].

    Benjamin Palmer und Nir Funt bei Bessy: Von der Natur lernen

    Die beiden Chemiker Benjamin Palmer und Nir Funt vom israelischen Weizmann Institute of Science sind auf dem Gebiet der Biomineralisierung tätig und kamen als Nutzer an den Elektronenspeicherring BESSY II. Sie erforschen, wie Pflanzen und Tiere harte, mineralisierte Teile wie zum Beispiel Zähne, Knochen, oder Panzer herstellen und nutzen. Besonders [...].

    Ana García Prieto: Mit Bakterien gegen den Krebs

    Oft sind es die kleinen Dinge, die helfen können, große Herausforderungen zu meistern. So auch im Falle von Ana García Prieto von der Universität des Baskenlandes. Sie kam im März 2017 nach Berlin und untersuchte an BESSY II das Bakterium Magnetospirillum gryphiswaldense ? unter anderem in der Hoffnung, damit in Zukunft Krebs heilen zu können. Eine [...].

    To guide electrons

    Quadrupols like these are able to affect the movement of electrons by their magnetic field. This ability makes them very useful in high energy light sources like Bessy II or BERLinPro to control and guide the beam. For example, quadrupols play an important role in the recirculator of BERLinPro. This is the part where after a potential experiment th [...].

    Accelerator tourism Part 8: Swiss Light Source & Swiss FEL

    The last annual meeting of the ?ESLS-RF? (which stands for ?European Synchrotron Light Source-Radio Frequency?) experts in November 2016 was hosted by the Paul Scherrer Institute, PSI, near Villigen. Softly settled in the middle of a smooth Switzerland landscape on both sides of the Aare river, it´s a huge center for research in the fields of matte [...].

    Easter Bunny in GunLab

    Latest news: Obviously Easter Bunny visited GunLab, HoBiCaT and the nearby facilities, leaving chocolates behind.Posted Thursday, Apr 13, 2017, 12:39:42 (UTC) by Roswitha Schabardin in episode business as (un)usual of project #BESSY [...].

    Follow me please: The Gun

    Currently the GunLab enthusiasts, scientists and engineers involved, are heavily busy @GunLab and again and again agreeing on working schedules there, since it´s too narrow there and not much space to move and work. They have to coordinate slots, and these slots allow each of them to work what and when.Entering it today, I again passed the entrance [...].

    Welcome to GunLab!

    Last week I saw something:This looks like a big mess. But it´s not at all a mess. I would like to explain you this, but I need to do that in very careful steps.Well, last of our scientists, Thorsten, met me on our front of my office... ...and he told me, "hey, Roswitha, you should go to the HoBiCaT bunker and hav [...].

    Accelerator tourism Part 7: SOLEIL, France

    Past October I visited the synchrotron SOLEIL, literally translated "Sun", southwest of Paris (France). SOLEIL is an acronym for "Source optimisée de lumière d?énergie intermédiaire du LURE", and I got the impression, the national french synchrotron close to Saint-Aubain is - oh là là, we are in France - quite a beauty in build [...].

    Mission completed: "The Loop" becomes visible

    Coming Saturday our Budker guys will fly back home to their deepfrozen Novosibirsk (I looked at the webcam today, brrr!). Spoken for me, I´m sad to see them leaving, but of course they are happy to see their families again.Their mission is completed.The magnets depict the ring structure of the future accelerator: The bERLinPro loop becomes clearly [...].

    (Immer wieder) zu Gast bei Bessy: Heiko Peisert

    Der Chemiker Heiko Peisert kommt seit über 20 Jahren an den Elektronenspeicherring nach Berlin und das nicht ohne Grund: Er schätzt, dass sich die Photonenquelle immer weiterentwickelt und ihm neue, interessante Experimente ermöglicht. Heiko Peisert leitet eine Arbeitsgruppe für "Physikalische Chemie" an der Universität Tübingen.1995 kam [...].

    These boots are made for walking...

    Nancy Sinatra sang, and asked, "are you ready, boots?"On Friday nine out of ten of "our Siberians" landed.By the arrival of the last colleague yesterday the Budker team is now complete.On Saturday we strolled sightseeing a couple of hours around Berlin. No problem for them - but due to heavy minus degrees I nearly froze myself t [...].

    Ready for Rock´n´Roll and spoiling the Russians

    "You´re spoiling them" my boss mumbles when he sees what we´re preparing for our Budker staff.Of course that´s nonsense, but he thinks it´s not.Well, of course I have prepared some little welcome package with some information for them, on Berlin´s public traffic, some maps of town and Adlershof neighbourhood and so. And of course this inf [...].

    Moving magnets and a missing bunch of flowers

    Maybe it´s trivial, but to me it´s not. Watching a new accelerator "growing" is not only about science, money, regular meetings, having a building site with various companies and whatever else. It´s a story of a million details which have to be considered and lined like beads on a chain. Hence for me it´s always a little adventure and hig [...].

    Awaiting Budker´s Eleven

    The HZB institutes for Accelerator Science and SRF Science & Technology (Superconducting Radio Frequency) hold a strong and for a long time already traditional cooperation with the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, BINP in Novosibisk (Russia). "Budker", as we say here, helped to design and then built the magnets for the new Energy [...].

    Interview with Dr. Margarita Russina: Explore with high intensity (Part 2)

    The first user experiment is coming up soon and the scientists are curious about the results. Before that, Dr. Margarita Russina took the time to speak about the NEAT project and its correlated research.The scientists in your team, like Gerrit Günther and Veronika Grzimek, are researching very different materials and effects. What experiment is you [...].

    What can NEAT see in MOF´s that others can´t?

    ?Als Chemikerin juckt es mich manchmal schon in den Fingern die MOF´s, die wir mit NEAT anschauen möchten, selbst herzustellen. Aber wir müssen Prioritäten setzen und die Synthese von MOF´s ist sehr aufwändig?, sagt Veronika. Veronika Grzimek, seit einem Jahr Postdoc am Helmholtz-Zentrum, führt die Arbeit von Moritz Schlegel am NEAT an den Metal Or [...].

    Oder wie verändert sich unsere auditive Wahrnehmung durch den allgegenwärtigen Gebrauch und Einsatz moderner Audiotechniken.Gerriet K. Sharma ist ein Komponist und Klangkünstler, der sich intensiv mit der Wahrnehmung von Klang beschäftigt. In seiner Doktorarbeit an der Universität Graz hat er nun untersucht, wie räumliche Wahrnehmung von Klangphäno [...].
