HZDR Research Sites
In addition to its headquarters in Dresden, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf has three other research sites. Researchers of the Institute of Radiooncology at HZDR also work at the OncoRay center, a site at the University Hospital Dresden.
The Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology was founded in 2011, belongs to Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and is cooperating closely with TU Bergakademie Freiberg.
Scientists carry out research on new technologies for exploration, extraction and exploitation of mineral and metal-containing raw materials.
The Research Site Leipzig is operated by scientists working at the Institutes of Resource Ecology and Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research.
The HZDR scientists in Leipzig investigate the transport of (toxic) substances in geological systems and also neurotracers for diagnosing and treating cancer-related cognitive defects.
The HZDR is currently installing the extreme lab HIBEF at the European XFEL in Schenefeld near Hamburg.
Contact: Dr. Carsten Baehtz
The goal is that, starting in 2018, the HIBEF infrastructures at the High-Energy Density Science Instrument (HED) will be used to conduct experiments under extreme conditions of high pressures, temperatures, or electromagnetic fields. Head of the international user consortia is Prof. Thomas Cowan, Director at the HZDR Institute of Radiation Physics.
Rossendorf Beamline at ESRF
Synchrotron Radiation for Radiochemistry
Head: Dr. Andreas Scheinost
Operation of the Rossendorf Beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France. Two measurement facilities for radiochemical experiments are available.
