Scientific Program of ELBE

The Radiation Source ELBE is the largest and most versatile research instrument of the HZDR. The electron beam of the superconducting linear accelerator delivers different kinds of secondary radiation for various research purposes from materials science up to medicine. The ELBE Center for High-Power Radiation Sources comprises of the Radiation Source as well as the two high-intensity lasers DRACO and PENELOPE.
