This project aims at the development and
the application of coherent and incoherent laser-based X-ray
sources emitting light in the wavelength range between 0.1
and 20 nm. The current applications are time-resolved X-ray
diffraction experiments on crystalline solids using a high
repetition rate laser produced plasma (LPP) source, X-ray
microscopy with a laser produced plasma source in the water
window and application of HOPG crystal spectrometer in various
fields of X-ray spectroscopy.
Subprojects and collaborations
- UP1: Investigation of phase transitions
and structural dynamics in solids: in the framework of
DFG SPP 1134 and in close collaboration with Project 3-02
- UP2: Instrumentation, generation and
application of x-rays from laser-based sources: in close
collaboration with Berlin
Laboratory of innovative X-Ray Technology (BLiX).

for innovative X-ray
The MBI participates in building-up a unique Application
Laboratory for X-ray technologies at the Technical
University (TU) in Berlin. The intention of this Berlin
Laboratory for innovative X-ray Technologies (BLiX)
is to provide a place for collaborative developments
of X-ray technology within the triangle of Knowledge-Education-Innovation.
