ANKA is the synchrotron light source of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, providing solutions by use of light from hard X-rays to the far-infrared for research and technology.
ANKA focuses on specific fields of science, it forms a key element for the embedded in-house research and provides scientific research capabilities and cost adapted industrial research.
To further enhance the industrial use at ANKA, ANKA Commercial Services (ANKA-CoS) acts as an intermediate between industrial customers, scientists working at and with ANKA and KIT Services Units (purchasing, innovation management, financial management and legal affairs) for:
- commercial access to ANKA synchrotron facility and to laboratory infrastructure to industrial customers
- valorization and licensing of ANKA technologies
- cooperations partly funded by industry
