Scientific and Technical groups

Scientific groups at European XFEL operate and manage the facility's instruments, assist users with technical aspects of their research, work on research projects in their own right, and further develop the facility.

Additionally, the groups do the technical and engineering work needed to maintain the facility, which is especially critical during user programmes when scientists visiting the campus need to make the best use of their time.

The Photon Beam Systems meetings, generally held every week, discuss facility developments in these areas.
