  • SwissFEL is finishing it’s assembly phase and has started recently the commissioning with to goal to allow

    first experiments in the hard x-ray in the end of  2017. First lasing at 24nm has been achieved in December. 

    Systematic commissioning and a stepwise increase of the energy will follow this year. A soft x-ray beamline

    will follow until 2019. Highly flexible operation schemes together with a new APPLE type undulator

    concept will make this beamline unique
