THz-Lab - General Information

  • The THz-Lab (room number 212) is located in building 540/542 on the second floor on the roof of room 111b. Both THz sources run with the ELBE electron beam in room 111b (cave), which is shielded with concrete. The THz radiation reaches the THz-lab located above via two optical beamlines. The photon and neutron radiation produced in room 111b is shielded by the 1.60 meter thick concrete roof between room 111b and the THz-Lab.

  • THz-Lab users have to wear an electronic dosimeter (EPD) and for longer stays additionally a personal albedo dosimeter during their stay in THz-Lab. The EPD they get in building 540/542. The albedo dosimeter they preferably should get from their own institution. If this is not possible, HZDR can give you an albedo dosimeter for a fee.  Without an albedo dosimeter, the access to the THz-Lab during beam time is limited.

  • There are two rooms for users which can be used as an office and user lounge – room 204 at second floor and room 101 at first floor.
  • The THz-Lab users must be also complete the form “Attestation for individual dose” in the GATE portal.
