The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has been operating ROBL at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble since 1998. It is one of only three scientific facilities in Europe that offers an alpha-lab environment to study radionuclides with synchrotron X-rays.
ROBL provides two experimental stations for synchrotron spectroscopy and diffraction techniques, and specializes on fundamental research on the chemistry of f-elements, on the disposal of radioactive waste and on environmental chemistry in general.
- Measurements of radioactive samples (solids, liquids or wet pastes) with an activity of up to 185 MBq
- Funded by HZDR, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the European Council
