KFS
Committee Research with Synchrotron Radiation
News from research and committee
Chairman: Prof. Dr. Stefan Eisebitt / Vice Chairwoman: Dr. Bridget Murphy
The KFS consists of the representatives of synchrotron radiation users, synchrotron radiation sources and funding institutions. It represents the synchrotron radiation users and gives advice for the future of research with synchrotron radiation.

New quantum states in the interior of atoms found

European XFEL and CFEL / DESY

European XFEL scientists look deep into the atom: Digging into the "Giant Resonance", scientists find hints of new quantum physics.

A cooperation between theoretical and experimental physicists has uncovered previously unknown quantum states inside atoms. The results, described in a paper published today in the journal Nature Communications, allow a better understanding of some aspects of electron behaviour in atoms, which in turn could lead to better insights into technologically relevant materials.

German-Swedish cooperation: Funding of common projects (Röntgen-Ångström-Cluster)

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has published a call for proposals for German-Swedish projects in materials sciences and structural biology with neutrons and synchrotron radiation (Röntgen-Ångström-Cluster). deadline is May 29, 2015, and funding is supposed to start on January 1, 2016. The projects should run at least three and at most four years and they should be structured by precise milestones. [more] [archive]
Henry Chapman
Leibniz Prize for DESY scientist Henry Chapman

DESY scientist Professor Henry Chapman was awarded one of the prestigious Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prizes 2015 by the German research foundation Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)on March 3rd, 2015. This important research award in Germany honours outstanding scientists. Henry Chapman received the 2.5-Million-Euro prize for his pioneering work in the development of femtosecond crystallography. It allows to decode the structure of complex biomolecules in its natural environment at the atomic level with the help of X-ray lasers. [more] [archive]
