Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY)
Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) is one of the world’s leading particle accelerator centres. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety. The accelerators and detectors that DESY develops and builds at its locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen are unique tools for science and research.
DESY provides access for industrial companies to its research infrastructure, including measurements at the beamlines of the synchrotron, analytics in the DESY NanoLab, prototype developments by the highly specialized workshops, or quality testing of different materials. The highly interdisciplinary DESY campus in Hamburg brings together over 3,000 world-class researchers from a variety of different fields. Start-ups and spin-offs from research also find a desirable infrastructure with unique networking possibilities in this setting.
DESY is a member of the Helmholtz Association, Germany’s largest scientific organization.
