The research centre DESY is one of the world’s leading accelerator centres. Here, researchers decode matter and the nanocosm in all its diversity. The accelerators and detectors developed and built by DESY are unique tools for research: they generate the world’s most intense X-ray light, bring particles to record energies and open completely new windows onto the universe.

DESY in a Nutshell

Scientists can only be truly successful if the framework is right and the infrastructure works. This infrastructure includes a great deal: from administration, workshops and computer centres to libraries and canteens. Hundreds of experts ensure that we are able to conduct top-notch research successfully. 
Young talents matter to us. In addition to exciting perspectives for students, the research centre also offers attractive training opportunities for a variety of professions. The diversity of the people at DESY is our strength.
