Research Infrastructure

European X-ray Free-Electron Laser Facility

Description The European XFEL will make available X-rays of unique quality for studies in physics, chemistry, life sciences, materials research and other domains. Located in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, it will comprise a superconducting electron accelerator, magnet structures for the generation of the X-ray radiation, photon beamlines, and scientific instruments for a wide range of experimental techniques. Construction of the European XFEL is underway, its commissioning is scheduled for 2015. XFEL is a project on the ESFRI Roadmap of Research Infrastructures (RIs) of pan-European interest.
