The Berlin Institute
The Berlin Institute is the traditional site of PTB in Berlin-Charlottenburg (since 1887). Here lies the focus of the divisions "Temperature and Synchrotron Radiation" as well as "Medical Physics and Metrological Information Technology".
In Berlin-Charlottenburg PTB presents itself as an impressive ensemble of historical buildings – and as a modern research and service institute for scientific measurement technology, also known as "metrology". The institute is not only a vital part of the scientific landscape of Berlin, but it also represents and is the showcase of PTB for politics and publicity in the federal capital.
