Blue Tunnel

Blue light installation in the photon tunnel


On the occasion of the event "Start of commissioning" on 6 October 2016, one of the photon tunnels of European XFEL was illuminated with blue light.

Katharina Fegebank, Hamburg's Second Mayor and Senator for Science, Research, and Equal Rights, and the Polish Deputy Minister of Science and Education Piotr Dardziński, together with European XFEL Managing Director Prof. Massimo Altarelli, have fixed a two meters long beamline thus making the facility ready for commissioning.
