Overview of the three European XFEL sites

The major part of the European XFEL facility is located in underground tunnels. Three sites above ground provide access to the tunnels. The site DESY-Bahrenfeld marks the beginning of the X-ray laser. From here, the facility is supplied with electrons, energy and cooling. Beneath the site Osdorfer Born, the tunnels separate into the first tunnel "fan". Beneath the site Schenefeld - the research campus of the European XFEL facility - the electrons emit the X-ray flashes that are then used for research in the experimental hall.
