Department 7.1


Initiates file downloadApplication of synchrotron radiation in the UV, EUV, VUV, and X-ray spectral range at the electron storage rings Metrology Light Source (MLS) and BESSY II for basic and applied metrological tasks with main focus on radiometry:


Solar Orbiter is a spacecraft of the European Space Agency (ESA) which is intended to orbit the Sun for seven years and to provide scientific insights into solar and heliospheric physics. This mission is scheduled to start in October 2018. Its main objective is to observe the so-called space weather, i.e. processes taking place in the solar corona which, due to particle radiation (the "solar...
