Compact accelerators: looking into matter with terahertz light

The FLUTE inauguration will take place on July 13th, 2017. See this movie for the working principle of FLUTE. 

KIT-IBPT researchers show the potential of tuning the emitted frequency comb at accelerator based light-sources at ANKA which enables new ultra-high resolution spectroscopy and metrology applications from the terahertz to the X-ray region.
Frequency-comb tuning in a Synchrotron Paves the Way to Novel Applications

KIT-IBPT researchers show frequency comb tuning at accelerator-based light-sources enabling applications from the terahertz to the X-ray region.

Materials Research at Ultra-high Pressures

Research team including scientists from IBPT presents a new approach to generating pressures of up to a Terapascal
