Prototype and Study for XFEL Undulators
Customer: DESY, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, Hamburg
Project duration: 2006 - 2007
The x-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) is being constructed in Hamburg as a European project with strong DESY participation.
Babcock Noell received the order from DESY to manufacture a prototype and, based on the resulting findings, to examine and analyze in a study the feasibility of an industrial serial production. The high precision required in this project is particularly challenging.
The project requires undulators with a total length of 800 m, each undulator having a length of 5 m.
