Exzellenzcluster Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI)
Luruper Chaussee 149
Atoms, molecules and electrons move, form bonds between each other and break apart unimaginably fast. Scientists at “The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging” (CUI) want to observe and understand these ultrafast processes directly on the atomic level of detail, so that maybe, one day, they will even be able to control them systematically. Since this undertaking will require the expertise of many disciplines, scientists from Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Medicine have joined forces under the umbrella of the cluster of excellence. Thereby teams of Universität Hamburg cooperate with teams of Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), the Max-Planck-Institut for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD), the European XFEL GmbH (XFEL), and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).
