ZEA-1 – Technology for World-Class Research (certified by TÜV)

Modern research requires technically sophisticated experimental facilities, expensive laboratory instruments, and complicated measuring techniques. ZEA-1 develops, plans, procures, and constructs all the equipment, instruments, and processes required by Forschungszentrum Jülich and by external customers for which there are no technical or commercial solutions.

Choppers and Selectors

Many scientific experiments at spallation sources, research reactors, synchrotron sources and photon sources require defined energy spectra, light or X-ray pulses to be selected. Depending on the source, neutron choppers, light choppers, or X-ray pulse selectors are used for this purpose. More: Choppers and Selectors …


Centre of Excellence in Joining Technologies (FEZ)

In cooperation with the Welding and Joining Institute (ISF) at RWTH Aachen University, the Centre of Excellence in Joining Technologies (FEZ), which is the largest organization for research and application in the field of joining technology in Germany, develops new processes for joining different materials for a wide variety of applications as part of JARA.

Fertigstellung Flugkammer TOPAS Direktor ZEA-1 und Vorstand
Time-of-Flight Chamber for Neutron Spectrometer TOPAS
A state-of-the-art neutron spectrometer is currently being constructed at the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS). TOPAS (Time-Of-Flight Spectrometer with Polarization Analysis) is among the best instruments of its type with unique possibilities for investigating dynamics in new materials. A milestone has been achieved at Jülich's Central Institute of Engineering, Electronics and Analytics (ZEA): the 30 tonne time-of-flight chamber is ready. The two institutions worked closely together to design and construct the chamber.
