  • Felsenkeller Underground Laboratory


The Felsenkeller underground laboratory is located in two 60 m long tunnels, shielded from cosmic rays by 45 m of rock. The remaining ultra-low background is fully characterized: 40x less muons, 180x less neutrons, 700x less gamma rays than at the surface of the Earth. The lab hosts two main devices: First, a 5 MV ion accelerator for low-background, high ion current nuclear reaction measurements
for astrophysics. Second, Germany’s lowest background high-purity germanium gamma-ray detector for microbecquerel radionuclide analyses. EU-supported complimentary access (https://www.chetec-infra.eu) to the lab is available through ChETEC-INFRA.EU (2021-2025), with proposals selected by an independent scientific advisory board based on scientific excellence only. The Felsenkeller underground lab is jointly operated by TU Dresden (Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics) and by Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR, Institute of Radiation Physics).

  • Experimental Area for Proton Beam Research at Oncoray

The core of the OncoRay research building is an innovative proton facility. While patients are being treated, OncoRay scientists can concurrently conduct research on cancer therapy. To this end, the proton beam is directed via a separate beamline to an experimental area. Whenever the proton beam is not needed for treating patients it can be used to investigate the impact of protons in vitro or in vivo or to address physical and technical issues. Experiments can be performed at two beamlines (see picture): the beamline on the left allows for scanning of pencil
beams at clinical parameters while the beamline on the right delivers stationary beams at extended beam parameters. The experimental area can also be used by external researchers.

  • Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory Hubert Engels Laboratory

The origins of today’s Hubert Engels Laboratory date back to the hydraulic engineering laboratory founded in Dresden by H. Engels in 1898, the first permanent river engineering laboratory in the world. Today, the laboratory comprises the hydraulic engineering hall, modern training laboratory rooms located in the historical Beyer Building since 1913, a field testing facility on the Wilde Weisseritz river between two dams, and a wind/wave measuring station directly on the artificial Lake Senftenberg. It enables scale model tests for research and teaching at a wide range of hydrotechnical scales. Moreover, the lab facilitates teaching by providing the opportunity for demonstrations and presentations.

  • Highly Immersive Driving Simulator

The highly immersive driving simulator has a novel concept due to its tire-bound omnidirectional motion platform, which addresses the challenge of reconstructing all occurring stimuli of a real driving situation into the virtual world. Developed jointly with AMST-Systemtechnik GmbH as part of an innovation partnership, the driving simulator offers a wide range of possible applications in the areas of automated driving testing, in-depth research into human driving behaviour, and classic vehicle development. Even critical scenarios can be represented in a safe test environment in a controllable and reproducible way, helping to reduce the effort of real driving tests in order to push virtual prototyping.
