Supported through the Helmholtz Association’s Initiative and Networking Fund:

Refugee Initiative of the Helmholtz Association

In an effort to provide a gateway into scientific or science-related employment for individuals who are forced to flee their homeland, the Helmholtz Association supports scientifically or technologically trained individuals.

Funding period: 2017 through 2018

 

Supported by the Federal State of Thuringia with funds from the European Regional Development Fund:

Two devices for the HI Jena research infrastructure

The Helmholtz Institute Jena receives support for the acquisition of a high-power laser system (2016 FGI 0015, “Coherent High-Flux XUV Source”), and a liquid helium cryostat for an ultra-low-temperature detector (2016 FGI 0017 and 2016 FGI 0037, “Compact high-resolution micro-calorimeter for broadband spectroscopy of XUV and X-ray radiation”).

Funding period: 02/17/2017 through 01/14/2020

 

Supported by the Federal State of Thuringia with funds from the European Social Fund:

XUV technologies and methods for nanometer-resolution imaging

In a collaboration of four working groups from the Helmholtz Institute Jena and the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, a joint research group (2015 FGR 0094, “XUV Technologies and Methods for nanometer-resolution imaging”) strives to bring two imaging methods – Coherent Diffraction Imaging (CDI) and XUV Coherence Tomography (XCT) – to deployability, with the ultimate aim of merging them into a combined method for cross-section imaging with three-dimensional, nanometer resolution. Furthermore, these methods will be complemented by tailored laser-based XUV sources and cryogenic detectors, allowing healthcare and industry laboratories, as well as research institutes and universities, to harness this novel imaging technology without requiring access to large-scale facilities such as synchrotrons.

Funding period: 05/01/2016 through 04/30/2019

Innovative methods for high-resolution X-ray imaging

Imaging in the high-energy X-ray regime has become indispensable for many modern commercial and healthcare applications, with current advancements mainly realized at large-scale synchrotron facilities. However, the limited availability of these installations hampers the development of X-ray imaging in commercial environments. The research group 2017 FGR 0074 investigates the feasibility of laser-driven X-ray sources to bridge the gap between novel technological breakthroughs and diagnostic systems tailored for both industry as well as medical applications.

Funding period: 04/01/2018 through 03/31/2020
