Abstract:
The European X-ray Free-Electron Laser came into operation in September 2017 as one of the most powerful x-ray laser facilities worldwide. Located in a 2-km-long underground tunnel in the metropolitan area of Hamburg, Germany, the superconducting XFEL linac can accelerate electrons to a maximum energy of 17. 5 GeV. Up to 27.000 electron bunches can be produced per second and distributed to three undulator systems feeding six scientific instruments. According to its final specifications, photon energies between 250 eV and 24 keV can be obtained in the lasing fundamental with energies of 1-10 mJ per pulse and pulse durations of 2-100 femtoseconds. In the hard x-ray regime, up to 1016 coherent photons per second will be available. This talk will highlight the activities and results obtained during the intense phase of the facility commissioning in 2017 and the early user program. The current status of the facility will be presented and discussed with respect to its initial goals and future perspectives. PowerPoint format.
