From 2009 on, PETRA III, a new 3rd generation hard X-ray source of worldwide lowest emittance, will become available for users with 14 undulator beamlines providing beams focused down to some 10 nanometer size.
The European X-ray free-electron laser XFEL with revolutionary beam parameters in terms of peak brilliance and coherence is scheduled to start operation from 2013 on.
The main topics of research with photons at DESY are: structure and dynamics of condensed matter on the nano-scale, free-electron laser science, life science and structural biology, engineering materials science, chemistry, geo- and environmental science and the development of novel technologies and methods.
Infrastructure providing access; participant of JRA2, co-ordinator of JRA5.
