Helmholtz Institute Jena

The Helmholtz Institute Jena (HI Jena) conducts research at the interface between conventional accelerator technology and the innovative field of laser-induced particle acceleration.

For this purpose, three partners combine their high competences: The Helmholtz Centers DESY and GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research cooperate with the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. The researchers have access to light sources and particle accelerators that are unique worldwide, such as FAIR, FLASH and XFEL.

The institute focuses on basic and applied research using high-power lasers and particle accelerator facilities.
