Experimental facilities

Research portfolio

The ESRF Experiments Division has built more than 40 specialised beamlines that are installed by the ESRF for use by the international scientific community. These beamlines are designed for research in areas as diverse as engineering, physics, chemistry, crystallography, earth science, biology and medicine, surface and materials science. In addition, several Collaborating Research Groups (CRGs) made up of institutes from countries participating in the ESRF, build and operate beamlines at the ESRF with independent funding

The Find a beamline area provides a map of the experimental hall and various options for identifying an appropriate beamline.
