The International Science@FELs Conference, organized by the Department of Physics, Stockholm University together with SUFEL (Stockholm-Uppsala Centre for Free Electron Laser Research), the MAX IV Laboratory and the Lund Laser Centre, will take place June 25-27, 2018, at the Alba Nova center in Stockholm, Sweden.


The White Paper for a flexible strong-field THz source in Uppsala has been reviewed by an external panel:

Soft X-ray Laser (SXL) beamline at MAX IV:

Science case for the SXL


Radiation of a new kind

Light for tomorrow

The development of X-ray source brilliance has been dramatic since the introduction of the first generation accelerators based sources of synchrotron radiation some 50 years ago. The latest phase in this development, the free electron lasers (FEL) has offered a billionfold leap in brilliance. Free electron lasers offer:


  • Ultra short pulses of VUV radiation and X-rays
  • Extreme peak brilliance
  • Coherent radiation


and they materialize previously undreamed-of possibilities for research in new domains of power density and time scale. Following the first VUV FEL (FLASH) at Hamburg in 2006 and the first X-ray FEL (LCLS) at Stanford in 2009 the science community is presently acquiring an entirely new toolbox to unravel the structure and dynamics of materials at the atomic scale.





SUFEL is a collaboration between the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University.
