The European XFEL is a new international research facility of superlatives, providing ultrashort and ultrahigh-brilliance X-ray laser flashes that will enable completely new opportunities for science. With its cutting-edge technology, the world's largest X-ray free-electron laser will not only open up new areas of research, it will serve as a catalyst for innovation in industrial applications.
European XFEL is participating in the Hannover Messe to encourage the involvement of industry in our research. This cooperation can take several forms. For example, companies can be industrial users, doing research using the European XFEL's unique suite of instruments and top experts in various basic research fields. Likewise, companies can develop new, alternative, marketable uses for technologies created during the construction of the facility.
