Website HZB_BESSY Bessy II (at HZB)

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH (HZB) operates BESSY II, one of the world’s most advanced synchrotron radiation sources in the VUV and soft X-ray range, as well as a special storage ring for metrology (MLS) as a radiation standard on behalf of the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).

A project team at HZB has already been planning successor facilities for BESSY II and MLS (BESSY III and MLS 2) since the beginning of 2020. BESSY III is scheduled to begin operations in 2030.

As part of the bERLinPro project to build a new linear accelerator with energy recovery and lowest emittance, HZB is planning and building a modern test facility for basic accelerator physics research.

Synchrotron radiation (photons) will be used for experiments at a wide variety of measuring stations. The beamlines for the electrons as well as photons require highly precise adjustment. Measurement technology is essential for the successful operation of our accelerator facilities as well as for the realisation of future projects.
