Jülich Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (JSRL)

Jülich offers expertise in the use of photon sources for material characterisation. The Jülich Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (JSRL) provides access to highly advanced photon-based spectroscopy and microscopy techniques.

As such, the JSRL operates dedicated tools and beamlines at different synchrotron radiation facilities. It provides the framework and expertise to develop new beamlines and experimental concepts, and partners with synchrotron laboratories all over the world. The JSRL currently operates beamlines and experimental end stations at DELTA and BESSY light sources in Dortmund and Berlin, respectively. In addition, the Quantum Materials and Collective Phenomena division (JCNS-2 / PGI-4) has built and is the owner of Beamline 6-ID-D at the APS in Argonne (USA). Such beamlines offer more than four orders of magnitude of photon energy, from five eV to 150 KeV, thus allowing a wide variety of experiments to be carried out.

In addition, from late 2018 the Short-Pulsed Particle and Radiation Center at the Forschungszentrum Jülich (JuSPARC) will serve as an experimental facility for research with short-pulsed photon and particle beams. The JuSPARC concept is based primarily on a range of time-resolved tools that use state-of-the-art technology to investigate the electronic, spin and structural states of matter with photon beams from the visible to the hard X-ray regions.
