Paper Abstract

TESLA is the project to build a superconducting linear collider for particle physics and an X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) laboratory. The XFEL operates in the high-gain self-amplified spontaneous emission mode and peak brilliances of the order 1035,photons/(smm2mrad20.1%bw) corresponding to 1012 photons in a 100 femtosecond X-ray pulse have been calculated. The covered wavelength range extends from 25 to 0.85A. To obtain SASE FEL radiation at these wavelengths the electron accelerator must fulfill extreme requirements with respect to emittance and bandwidth. The paper describes the technical realization of the XFEL laboratory, introduces the properties of XFEL photon beams and gives an overview of the scientific applications of XFEL radiation.
