Max-Born-Institut für Nichtlineare Optik und Kurzzeitspektroskopie im Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. (MBI)
Max-Born-Straße 2a, 12489 Berlin
According to its statute, the MBI conducts basic research in the field of nonlinear optics and ultrafast dynamics of the interaction of light with matter and pursues applications that emerge from this research. It develops and uses ultrafast and ultra-intense lasers and laser-driven short-pulse light sources in a broad spectral range in combination with methods of nonlinear spectroscopy.
With its research the MBI fullfills a nationwide mission and is an integral part of the international science community. The MBI is involved in a large number and variety of cooperative research projects with universities, other research institutions and industrial partners. In addition, it offers its facilities and its scientific know-how also to external researchers within the framework of an active guest programme.
