Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon has bundled its activities in the field of research with synchrotron radiation and neutrons at the “German Engineering Materials Science Centre” (GEMS). GEMS is part of the Institute of Materials Physics and offers a research platform that provides unique research instruments for academic as well as industrial users in the field of materials research. The most important tool for this is X-ray diffraction and small-angle scattering with high-energy photons that have sufficient penetration for the study of bulk materials properties. Some questions concerning materials processing can only be answered by in-situ experiments where the material is probed during the ongoing process. The design and operation of such in-situ experiments in the field of engineering materials research is our goal. In this webinar, an overview of GEMS sample environments and examples of selected experiments will be presented.
