The European XFEL—Status and commissioning

Hans Weise


The European XFEL under construction in Hamburg, Northern Germany, aims to produce X-rays in the range 260 eV to 24 keV using three undulators that can be operated simultaneously with up to 27,000 pulses per second. The FEL is driven by a 17.5 GeV superconducting linac. Installation of this linac is now finished and commissioning will take place next. First lasing is expected for spring 2017. This paper summarizes the status of the project. First results of the injector commissioning are given.
