Partner Logo Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon

As a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres, the largest scientific organization in Germany, Hereon is engaged in long-term activities in the fields of materials and coastal research that are making a major contribution to resolving the large and pressing issues facing society and the scientific and business worlds.
As part of the Hereon Institute of Materials Physics, GEMS is a central user access platform, where Hereon provides a worldwide unique infrastructure for complementary research with photons and neutrons. Instruments using synchrotron radiation are operated at the outstation at DESY in Hamburg and instruments using neutrons are located at the outstation at the FRM II in Garching near Munich.
Hereon will bring its expertise in residual stress determination into the project as well as the technical infrastructure at its instruments, especially the diffraction beamlines at PETRA III/DESY.
