Accelerator-based Light Sources

Together with its national and international partners, the Helmholtz Association develops, builds and operates unique large research facilities and networks of distributed research infrastructures to address specific research challenges.

In addition, the centers of the Association collect valuable data from the experiments performed at their research infrastructures, which are also made available to external researchers. Examples of these research infrastructures are:

Further R&I Facilities:

  • PHELIX (Petawatt High-Energy Laser for Heavy Ion EXperiments)
  • Polaris (Petawatt Optical Laser Amplifier for Radiation Intensive ExperimentS)
