The central laboratory of the CRC “Nanospectroscopy and X-Ray Imaging”, located at the Faculty of Physics, offers its participants different sources for short pulse generation in a broad energy range. Here, the different workgroups are not only able to use these state-of-the-art light sources, but also to combine their particular fields of interest.
The available instruments cover energy domains from hard X-rays over soft X-rays / extreme UV light up to infrared radiation and the minimum pulse lengths ranges from femtoseconds up to nanoseconds. Due to their pulsed structure, a multitude of time-resolved experiments for in-house research are possible. Furthermore, the laboratory supports preparations for external beam times at synchrotron sources and FELs (in particular at FLASH, Hamburg).
