Im Spiegel Online erschiem am 01.04.2017 ein Artikel zum European XFEL mit dem Titel „Die Lichtmaschine - Zu Besuch beim teuersten Experiment Deutschlands“. Acht Jahre Bauzeit, mehr als 1,2 Milliarden Euro teuer: Bei Hamburg soll in diesem Jahr die hellste Röntgenquelle der Welt in Betrieb gehen. Eine Forschungsanlage der Superlative. Wofür ist die gut?

KFS-election 2017: The result

The German synchrotron radiation users have elected their new representatives. 8 candidates out of 15 were elected (Eisebitt, Frahm, Grunwaldt, Gutt, Kanngießer, Köster, Murphy, Rossnagel). To complete the KFS it needs: one representative of each synchrotron centre, maximum 4 members who are coopted by the elected members to cover important scientific fields, and a representative of the ESUO, BMBF, DFG and the Project Management Organisation as guests. Here, we present the election result. [more] [archive]
European XFEL
With its first lasing, the European XFEL reaches the last big milestone before the official opening

In the metropolitan region of Hamburg, the European XFEL, the biggest X-ray laser in the world, has reached the last major milestone before the official opening in September. The 3.4 km long facility, most of which is located in underground tunnels, has generated its first X-ray laser light. The X-ray light has a wavelength of 0.8 nm—about 500 times shorter than that of visible light. At first lasing, the laser had a repetition rate of one pulse per second, which will later increase to 27 000 per second. [more] [archive]
Workshops on Future Perspectives of the Röntgen-Ångström Cluster - Photon Science Workshop

The Röntgen-Ångström Cluster RAC is a Swedish-German research collaboration in the fields of materials science and structural biology that aims to strengthen research at synchrotron and neutron radiation sources. The Photon Science Workshop (June 08-09, 2017 in Hamburg) is one of two scientific workshops that are strongly cross-connected (Photon Science/ Neutron Science) to discuss the future perspectives of RAC beyond 2020. The workshops shall bring together key stakeholders from various scientific fields and associated research communities to discuss and identify the most promising scientific directions and arrive at a long-term strategic view how the RAC collaborative framework should be further pushed and developed towards new levels.
