Institut für Röntgenphysik

The Institut für Röntgenphysik (IRP; English: Institute for X-ray Physics) is dedicated to biophysical research and the development and application of modern x-ray scattering and imaging methods to complex fluids and biomolecular matter. The main research tools are x-ray diffraction, coherent x-ray imaging, x-ray waveguide optics and holography, x-ray microscopy, various light microscopy methods (fluorescence, confocal, phase contrast, differential interference contrast), microfluidics and microstructuring. Experiments are carried out both in-house and at national and international synchroton radiation sources and neutron reactors.
