Berlin Laboratory for Innovative X-ray
The„Berlin Laboratory for Innovative X-ray Technologies“
mainly the technology transfer between Science and
industry. BLiX belongs to one of the five foundation labs
under the new umbrella brand of Leibniz
Application Laboratories which currently numbers 17
institutions. The purpose of the Leibniz Application Labs
is to combine new research results with practical
applications and marketable procedures and products. BLiX
is supposed to be a place for collaborative technological
developement in the triangle Knowledge – Education –
Innovation supporting technology transfer projects in the
field of x-ray technologies between partners from small
and medium enterprises and scientific facilities as well
as education and advanced training.
After a feasibility study compiled by MBI
together with the Institute for Mangement at the Freie
Universität Berlin and Institute for Applied Photonics,
Berlin BLiX was launched in fall of 2009 at the Technische
Universität Berlin as an Innovative Lab affiliated to the
endowed professorship 'analytical X-ray physics'
holded by Birgit Kanngießer. First transfer activities
embeded in the concept of Leibniz Application Laboratory
of the Leibniz Gemeinschaft were funded by the "Wirtschaft
trifft Wissenschaft" program. The laboratories of BLiX,
completely renovated by TU Berlin cover an area of about
250 sqm. BLiX was opened in February 2011 for user access.
The current applications and user activities can be found
in collaboration with Institute of Optics and
Atomic Physics, Technical University Berlin
