CeXS is the academic host of the Swedish Material Science beamline at PETRA III, DESY in Hamburg.
Focusing on enhancing the use of high energy X-rays for materials R&D, CeXS is:
1. Securing Sweden's privileged access to PETRA III
2. Engaging researchers to use the opportunities
3. Educating and disseminating results
CeXS is currently orchastrating instrument proposals, for the future PETRA IV, which can give new insights into material science.

Apply for privileged access
Apply for Sweden's privileged access to the PETRAIII high energy X-ray facility at DESY in Hamburg.
Companies can apply for paid access at any time.
Open research deadlines are normally scheduled in the spring and autumn.
Cutting edge innovation now requires advanced materials characterisation, for example, non-destructive characterisation within materials at high temporal resolution – entailing the use of high energy X-rays facilities such as PETRA III.

We’ve know that in offshore applications hydrogen embrittles stainless steels - but not why.
KTH and Sandvik researchers used time resolved measurements and found that the two phases of duplex stainless steel each react to hydrogen in different ways: H is more likely to diffuse through the bcc phase and dissolve in the fcc phase - so increased internal stresses, and thereby embrittlement, is inevitable.
