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]

Particle accelerator for the European XFEL X-ray laser operational

The international X-ray laser European XFEL has reached one of its final major milestones on the way to scientific user operation. DESY has successfully commissioned the particle accelerator, which drives the X-ray laser along its full length. It is the worlds longest superconducting linear accelerator. [more] [archive]
RACIRI Summer School 2017: Grand Challenges and Opportunities with the Best X-ray and Neutron Sources

This year’s RACIRI Summer School will take place in Ronneby in Southern Sweden (August 19-26, 2017). "Grand Challenges and Opportunities with the Best X-ray and Neutron Sources" is the motto of the course which addresses senior masters students in the final phase of their study programme (master/diploma), or PhD students with proven academic background and necessary qualifications, or young scientists (Postdocs). There will be scholarships for students and young scientists who are working at German research institutions or universities and who are residents of Germany. [more] [archive]
