DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science, particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics.
DESY‘s Photon Science division combines cutting-edge science on an internationally leading level and the operation of top-level light sources. The group FS-PESI develops and operates 10 beamlines at one of the world leading synchrotron light sources, PETRA III. Main focus is on spectroscopic and imaging hard X-ray instruments, however also diffraction experiments are part of the portfolio. Several beamlines and instruments are operated jointly with international partners.
