Abstract:
The European XFEL is a 3.4 km long X-ray Free Electron Laser in its final construction and commissioning phase in Hamburg. It will produce spatially coherent X-rays in the energy range between 0.25 keV and 25 keV. The machine will deliver 10 trains/s, consisting of up to 2700 pulses/trains at 4.5MHz repetition rate. In 2015 a first electron beam was produced in the RF-photo-injector and the commissioning of consecutive sections are ongoing. A huge number and variety of devices for the accelerator, beamlines, experiments, cryogenic and facility systems needs to be controlled together. Data acquisition requires a precise timing and synchronisation system. Fast feedbacks from front-ends, the DAQs and online analysis system must be seamlessly integrated and provided for the accelerator and the initial 6 experimental stations. An overview of the XFEL control system, Karabo is presented.
