Welcome at the User Facilities of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) operates several research infrastructures most of which are accessible to external users. About 50 % of the available beam or magnet time is allotted to external users.
ELBE – Center for High-Power Radiation Sources
The radiation source ELBE provides an electron beam of high brilliance and low emittance. This primary beam can generate various kinds of electromagnetic radiation and particle beams, which also are available for experiments. Twice per year users are invited to apply for beamtime at ELBE.
Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory
The Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HLD) offers pulsed highest magnetic fields (European record with 94.2 tesla) and excellent experimental facilities for materials research. HLD is part of the European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL). Applications for magnet time are evaluated within this cooperation.
Ion Beam Center
The Ion Beam Center is an internationally leading center of competence for the application of ion beams in materials research. Plasma and ion sources generate ions of all species at energies between 10 eV and 50 MeV. The center is funded as user facility by the EU.
Rossendorf Beamline at ESRF
This beamline is housed at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France. Here, energy research benefits from Europe’s most brilliant source of X-ray light. Two measurement facilities for radiochemical experiments are available. Two thirds of the beamtime is managed by the HZDR. The remaining one third is managed by the ESRF.
