The cluster of Excellence has been awarded to the University of Hamburg in the framework of the Federal Excellence Initiative of Germany.

Functionalities are at the heart of the cluster of excellence „CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter“. Atoms bind together and form solids, molecules interact and react - new functionalities emerge with increasing complexity and growing system size. 185 scientists from different disciplines such as physics, chemistry, and structural biology have joined forces to observe, understand, and control these processes. Thereby teams of Universität Hamburg cooperate with scientists of the Deutsche Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD), and the European XFEL GmbH (XFEL).
