About Laboratory Condensed Matter (LSC)
The SLS and the SwissFEL host world-leading capability in advanced materials spectroscopy ranging from photoemission spectroscopy, over spectromicroscopy to different X-ray absorption, scattering and diffraction techniques. These techniques enable to provide the society with fundamental knowledge needed for the next generation technologies.
The LSC laboratory is one of 6 laboratories within the Photonscience division (PSD). It operates 7 beamlines at the Swiss Light Source (SLS), one endstation at the SwissFEL and develops and provides the full instrumentation from source to detector and expertise in data analysis. The 6 groups within the LSC laboratory are responsible for the operation and user support and do research mostly in condensed matter physics.
LSC OrganizationThe LSC is composed out of 6 research groups, each of which operates one or more beamlines. The beamlines are built and operated for users as well as for in-house research.
