The Institutes of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf
Dresden High Magnetic Field LaboratoryThis laboratory focuses on modern materials research in high magnetic fields. In particular, electronic properties of metallic, semiconducting, superconducting, and magnetic materials are investigated. This way the High Magnetic Field Laboratory serves as a research facility for both in-house and user projects.
Director: Prof. Joachim WosnitzaMore
Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials ResearchThis institute conducts materials research for future applications, e. g. in information technology and for energy conversion. To this end use is made of the various possibilities offered by the Ion Beam Center (IBC) for synthesis, modification, and analysis of thin films and nanostructures.
Institute of Radiation PhysicsBasic research in accelerator, nuclear, hadron and laser physics is this institute's top-priority. The Institute of Radiation Physics is also engaged new ways of producing radiation and particle beams, and new detectors and measurement techniques for application to cancer research, nuclear safety and advanced materials.
Institute of Radiopharmaceutical Cancer ResearchThe institute is engaged in Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research. Chemical, biological and physical working groups collaborate to increase the knowledge in the scopes of molecular imaging and tumor therapy.
Institute of RadiooncologyThe aim of the institute is to improve cure of cancer through biologically individualized and technologically optimized radiotherapy. The institute's focus and strategy - to bridge the gap between research and clinical application - have been defined in response to the high demand for pre-clinical and clinical translational research in this area.
Director: Prof. Michael BaumannMore
Institute of Resource EcologyThe Institute of Resource Ecology performs research to protect humans and the environment from hazards caused by pollutants resulting from technical processes that produce energy and raw materials.
Director: Prof. Thorsten StumpfMore
Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource TechnologyThe HIF – an HZDR institute located in Freiberg – strives to develop innovative technologies for the economy so that mineral and metalliferous raw materials can be made available and used more efficiently and recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.
Department of Research TechnologyThe Department of Research Technology develops and implements dedicated research devices ranging from experiment equipment to the level of complex and large research facilities.
Head: Prof. Peter KaeverMore
Department of Information Services and ComputingThe Department of Information Services and Computing is the service, consultation and coordination center for the IT infrastructure of the HZDR. It supports all the institutes, departments as well as external users on the campus.
