X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) Biological Infrastructure

Förkortning

XBI (Suomi)

Beskrivning av infrastrukturen

The European X-ray Free Electron Laser, XFEL, is a joint venture by twelve European countries, involving the construction of the XFEL-based Integrated Biology Infrastructure, the XBI. The XFEL will generate ultrashort X-ray pulses based on a femtosecond construction and with a brilliance over one billion times that of modern x-ray sources. These unique features provide completely new opportunities for both research and industrial users in the fields of physics, the material sciences, the biosciences and medicine. The XFEL provides instrumentation for the imaging of nano-level materials, temporal differentiation studies of ultrafast processes and the study of small quantum systems.
