ANKA as a 2.5 GeV electron storage ring generates synchrotron radiation over a large spectral range that is used to perform experiments at several beamlines with different spectroscopic techniques.
These techniques cover a broad range of energies, allowing access to vibrations, electronic levels, and chemical bonds of elements throughout the entire periodic table.
Furthermore, they differ in their depth sensitivity, ranging from very surface-sensitive methods and two-dimensional measurements, to bulk probes and three-dimensional investigations.

And, finally, different initial and final states of the underlying physical processes allow deep insights into the dynamic properties of matter.
