THE ACTIVITY OF THE LABORATORY IS PERFORMED BY

THE GROUP OF RESEARCHERS AND PHD STUDENTS GATHERED AROUND THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES AND SCIENTIFIC PROBLEMS.

Some of the experiments explore the advantage of synchrotron radiation at:

  • HASYLAB, Hamburg, Germany
  • LURE, Orsay, France
  • MAX II, Lund, Sweden
  • ALS, LBNL, Berkeley, USA
  • ESRF, Grenoble, France
  • FLASH, DESY, Hamburg, Germany
  • E-XFEL, DESY, Hamburg, Germany

and in collaboration with national and foreign scientific institutions.
