XFEL- X-Ray Free Electron Laser

XFEL is the world’s largest and powerful X-ray laser. It was unveiled in Hamburg, Germany.  At present, 11 countries have participated in the project. The European XFEL is constructed such that the electrons produce X-ray light in synchronisation, resulting in high-intensity X-ray pulses with the properties of laser light and at intensities much brighter than those produced by conventional synchrotron light ..
