 Tour Tech Park Berlin-Adlershof

Dr. Bernd Ludwig (WISTA) will take you on a short walking tour of the campus (as long as the weather permits it) and he will introduce you to the history of the location, elaborate on the main achievements in the last three decades and will point out Photonics institutes and companies. Be prepared for some interesting anecdotes.

 Travelling to ONE of the following institutes:

Ferdinand-Braun-Institute (FBH) is an application-oriented research institute in the fields of high-frequency electronics, photonics and quantum physics. It researchesand realizes electronic and optical components, modules and systems based on compound semiconductors. Its research areas include (1)Photonics, (2) Integrated Quantum technology, (3) III-V Electronics, and(4) III-V Technology.

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie/ BESSY II (HZB)
BESSY II, the synchrotron radiation facility in Berlin, Germany, offersawide range of free research opportunities to the international scientific community. From photovoltaics, chemical energy conversion andbatteries to quantum materials, information technology materials, biology, cultural heritage and medical research, BESSY II@HZB provides the infrastructure for both in-house science and external use. Although BESSY II is designed for the soft X-ray range, experiments with infraredradiation on the lower energy side and hard X-rays on the other side are also possible. The instrument portfolio allows a variety of methods such as photoemission, photoabsorption, scattering and diffraction, microscopy or imaging. Up to 2500 visiting scientists per year from morethan 50 countries reflect the internationality and diversity of the center. As a large-scale research facility, BESSY II isthus also a key player in the fields of science diplomacy and international cooperation.During the tour, you will get an insight into the storage ring tunnel of BESSY II, get an overview of the scientific possibilities at BESSY IIin the experimental hall and get to know various scientific highlights of the center.

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU)
With more than 6,000 students, Humboldt University's Adlershof campusis the vibrant center of Berlin Adlershof, Germany's largest science and technology park. The institutes of chemistry, geography, computer science, mathematics, physics and psychology are located here.

Max-Born-Institute (MBI)
MBI conducts basic research in the field of nonlinear optics and ultrafast dynamics in the interaction of matter with laser light and pursues applications that emerge from this research. It develops and utilizes ultrashort and ultrafast lasers and laser-based short-pulse light sources in a wide spectral range in conjunction with nonlinear
spectroscopy methods. The combined use of lasers with x-ray pulses from free electron lasers and synchrotrons complements this scientific program.
