 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The objectives of the Preparatory Phase of the European X-ray Free-Electron Laser Facility are: a) to provide the technical, legal and financial documents which are necessary for the foundation of this new research infrastructure in Europe. b) to advance as far as possible in the specification, research and development, prototyping and industrialization of buildings, technical infrastructure, technical components, in order to start the construction phase with maximum probability to conclude it succesfully on time and budget. c) to mobilize the potential users community, which is multidisciplinary and possibly composed by scientists experienced with synchrotron light sources, with ultrafast lasers, and ultrafast electron diffraction. As far as the objectives a) are concerned, the Technical Design Report is completed, and nearly final drafts of the Convention and of the Articles of Association are available. Still missing are the basic contractual framework to regulate in-kind contributions from participating countries, and the framework contract regulating the relationship between the new international facility and the host laboratory (DESY), which are among the deliverables of the present proposal (Work Packages 4 and 5). As far as the objectives b) are concerned, the work is very advanced for accelerator and infrastructure design, where DESY personnel is engaged; for instrumentation and experiments development, the necessary personnel is lacking. One goal of this proposal is the immediate recruitment of an international staff, supported by the EC funding, in order to advance in this domain, and to impress a strong international flavour to the enterprise, which has been so far mostly carried out as a DESY activitity (Work Package 3). As far as the objectives listed under c) are concerned, with support from this proposal we plan to hold 9 workshops over the next 4 years, plus three annual Users’ meetings (Work Package 2).'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-sponsored project has initiated the construction and operation of one of the most innovative scientific instruments in the world.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The project is known as ?Preparatory activities for the implementation of the European X-ray free-electron laser facility? (PRE-XFEL), and it has created a limited liability company under German law called the European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility GmbH (European XFEL GmbH). The facility will be used, for example, to determine the atomic configuration of materials and molecules.

Participating research institutions are shareholders in the company, and over 80 employees are active in the construction and management of the facility. Many international laboratories will also contribute the components required for the facility's operations. These include the devices that produce ultra-short bursts of coherent X-rays, photon beamlines and instrumentation systems.

The potential scientific use of the facility after 2015 has also been discussed with the community in a series of meetings across eight countries. Young scientists have been included through information days at schools.

The European Community's research directorate (European Strategy Forum for Research infrastructures (ESFRI)), national government research funding agencies, the academic community and European industry all stand to benefit from the new facility. As such, PRE-XFEL has played a vital role in realising the potential of this instrument.
