Paper Abstract

At the Deutsches Elektronensynchrotron DESY the conceptual design of a linear collider with integrated X-ray free electron lasers (X-FEL) has been presented. The definition of the technical layout of the X-FEL multi user facility has started. Such a facility is different from well-known synchrotron radiation facilities like electron storage rings. An electron beam switch-yard will allow the operation of up to 10 beamlines simultaneously. Dump-systems stop the electron beams after passing the undulators. The experimental hall with about 30 experiments will have a size of about 190 x 34 m2. The beamlines for the SASE FELs will have a length between 200 and 400m. The switchyard tunnel system, the buildings of the experimental area and the radiation safety concept are discussed.
