HZDR Research Sites

In addition to its headquarters in Dresden, the HZDR operates five other research sites: Grenoble, Freiberg, Görlitz, Leipzig and Schenefeld near Hamburg. The HZDR Institute for Radiooncology - OncoRay - is located on the University Hospital Dresden campus.

Directors: Prof. Dr. Jens Gutzmer (PhD ZA)

Scientists in Freiberg and Dresden pursue the objective of developing 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.

Contact: PD Dr. Toma Toncian

Under the leadership of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in cooperation with the Hamburg research Centre DESY, HIBEF pools equipment and expertise from various research institutions to make them available to the international scientific community. The beamline is part of the High Energy Density (HED) experimental station at the X-ray laser European XFEL, enabling deep insights into the structure of materials and hyper-fast natural plasma-physical processes. This will help researchers drive innovation in materials and accelerator research, for example, thanks to improved models of planet formation and simulations of processes in plasma.
