X-FELS - where


European X-FEL

The European XFEL is located mainly in underground tunnels which can be accessed on three different sites. The 3.4 km-long facility runs from the DESY campus in Hamburg to the town of Schenefeld in Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). At the research campus in Schenefeld, teams of scientists from all over the world carry out experiments using the X-ray flashes. To construct and operate the European XFEL, international partners agreed on the foundation of an independent research organization – the European XFEL GmbH. At present, 12 countries are participating in the project: Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. he European XFEL GmbH cooperates closely with the research centre DESY and other organizations worldwide. Construction started in early 2009; user operation began in September 2017.
The European XFEL generates ultrashort X-ray flashes—27 000 times per second and with a brilliance that is a billion times higher than that of the best conventional X-ray radiation sources.
The world's largest X-ray laser is opening up completely new research opportunities for scientists and industrial users.
Currently, six instruments are operating and accepting proposal for beamtime allocation.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

7th Call for Proposals for User Experiments at the European XFEL
The European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility encourages the scientific community worldwide to submit proposals for User Experiments via the User Portal to the European XFEL (UPEX) until Wednesday 16 December 2020 16:00 (local Hamburg/Schenefeld time – Central European Time CET)


FERMI X-FEL

FERMI (acronym for Free Electron laser Radiation for Multidisciplinary Investigations) is the seeded free electron laser (FEL) facility in operation for external users next to the third-generation synchrotron radiation facility Elettra. Unique among the FEL sources currently operating in the ultraviolet and soft x-ray range worldwide, FERMI has been developed to provide fully coherent ultrashort (10-100 femtosecond) pulses with a peak brightness ten billion times higher than that made available by third-generation light sources. FERMI opens unique opportunities for exploring the structure and transient states of condensed matter, soft matter and low-density matter using a variety of diffraction, scattering and spectroscopy techniques.
