Focus

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) is researching into complex material systems that will help us to achieve humanity’s challenging goals, such as the Energiewende – Germany’s ambitious transition to renewable energies. Important research topics include solar cells, solar fuels, thermoelectrics and novel materials for developing a new and energy-efficient form of information technology (spintronics). Research into these energy materials heavily involves the operation and continuous advancement of the electron storage ring BESSY II, which produces high-brilliancy synchrotron radiation in the terahertz to soft X-ray frequency range.

Partners from industry and research have many opportunities for cooperating with HZB. Together with universities, HZB runs several graduate schools, where young researchers can complete their doctoral theses.
