Researchers from different disciplines are working together at DESY to create a dynamic environment for the development and implementation of novel and exciting ideas in photon science - the understanding of how light interacts with matter.

Reseachers from DESY Photon Science are also strongly engaged in teaching in academia, for example at the University of Hamburg. It is Hamburg’s largest institute of higher education with around 42,000 enrolled students (including doctoral students and students on academic leave).

The emphasis of most lectures is on understanding the fundamental principles of photon science. Topics range from structure of matter, to more specific topics like condensed matter and surface physics, nanoscience, engineering and materials science.
