The Campus Laboratory for Advanced Imaging, Microscopy and Spectroscopy (AIMS) is currently in the formation phase towards an interdisciplinary institution of the Göttingen Campus with the aim of pushing the development of novel analytical techniques at the highest level.
As a cross-institutional initiative AIMS brings together researchers from Göttingen Campus and partner institutes:

I. Physical Institute
III. Physical Institute
IV. Physical Institute
Institute of Materials Physics
Institute of X-Ray Physics
Institute of Numerical and Applied Mathematics
Institute of Mathematical Stochastics
Institute of Inorganic Chemistry
Institute of Microbiology and Genetics
Institute of Neuro- and Sensory Physiology
Institute of Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology

Increasing the spatial resolution in microscopy was a main driver for method development in Göttingen over the last two decades. While the importance of spatial resolution will continue, future trends in microscopy, imaging and spectroscopy will equally address temporal resolution, quantitative contrast, demanding sample environments, optimum data acquisition and information retrieval. Advancements in high resolution physical techniques will continue to transform the natural sciences and ultimately also deliver enabling technology to a broad range of industrial, engineering, and biomedical applications.
