Science

European XFEL is a new research facility where, from Septemeber 2017 on, external research groups will work. Until the results of these research projects are published, we can only offer on these pages a glimpse of the future studies that can be performed here. These pages will be updated as soon as results from the different areas of application unfold.

The interdisciplinary research at the European XFEL will deliver valuable insights into many areas of science. Experience shows that from this type of basic research, important applications develop.

With its unique research opportunities, the European XFEL will attract world-class scientists from across the world. Many different scientific disciplines will come together and build off of each other and strengthen one another. Experience shows that the interplay of various challenges and ideas leads to new products and product improvements.

Many areas of science will profit from the new facility—among others, medicine, pharmacology, chemistry, physics, materials science, nanotechnology, energy technology, and electronics.
