ELBE: "Insights into the Nano-World"

Scientists working in materials research today often aim at improving materials on the nano-scale. Therefore, they have to look into this nano-world. Positrons, the anti-particles of electrons, can help visualizing nano-defects. They can be generated at the ELBE Center for High-Power Radiation Sources of the HZDR.

European Magnetic Field Laboratory film on the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory: "Science in High Magnetic Fields"

The Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (Hochfeld-Magnetlabor Dresden, HLD, Germany) focuses on modern materials research in high magnetic fields. The HLD is part of the European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL), a collaboration of three research institutes in Germany, France and the Netherlands. It is the mission of the EMFL to generate the highest possible magnetic fields for use in scientific research and make them available to the scientific community.

X-ray tomograph ROFEX: "Making Invisible Flows Visible"

Researchers at the HZDR also deal with visualizing flows in industry. One of their tools, which was developed by the scientists themselves, is the ultra-fast X-ray tomograph ROFEX. There is no other scientific imaging device in the world like ROFEX which can take up to 10,000 images per second.
