Russia and Germany to cooperate on XFEL project

4 Jun '12
Kurchatov Institute, Russian creator of X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL), and German synchronous center DESY and Jülich Research Centre will cooperate in storing, processing and analyzing large data obtained in joint scientific projects, news agency RIA Novosti reports.

The European project to create X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL) may become a pilot IT project of cooperation between scientific centers of Russia and Germany.

XFEL is a three-kilometer structure to be build by 2014 at DESY scientific center in Hamburg, Germany. The laser will technologically surpass other similar machines, currently under construction in the USA and Japan.

XFEL will allow researchers to study processes of molecule formation and destruction and instantly register phase transitions in material that take place under the influence of powerful impulse radiation. This will enable researchers to understand the nature of substance and construct new materials with set features.
