Center for Free-Electron Laser Science - CFEL

The Center for Free-Electron Laser Science as a joint enterprise of DESY, the Max Planck Society (MPG), and the University of Hamburg is designed to advance science with next generation light sources and lasers.

The three partners join forces to explore structural changes of atoms, molecules, condensed, biological, or warm dense matter on femtosecond time scales. CFEL envisions uncovering the "dynamics of matter" by uniting expertise from various disciplines and research institutions into a new interdisciplinary and synergistic effort.
