The Center for Hybrid Nanostructures (CHYN).
The Center for Hybrid Nanostructures is part of the Institute of Nanostructure- and Solid State Physics (INF) of the University of Hamburg (UHH). It is embedded among a steadily growing number of research centers in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld, close to the facilities of DESY. Among these are the Center for Free Electron Laser Science (CFEL), the Center for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI), and the newest addition the Center for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB). CHYN has been selected by the German Science Council - the Wissenschaftsrat (WR) - for funding in 2011 and has since been in the detailed planning stage. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2014 according to the Hamburg Ministry of Science and Research (BWF).
