More info

Paul Aden will deliver a 45-minute public seminar, introducing the UK XFEL facility, which is run by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). A Q&A Session will follow, which can include questions about career prospects. This is part of the Physics Student Seminar Series of the University of Chester. It is organised by Physics students and supervised by Dr Theodoros Papadopoulos. All welcome!

Abstract: X-Ray Free Electron Lasers are a novel new type of particle accelerator able to deliver new insights into material science, chemical processes, life sciences, quantum technologies and much more. Given the wide reaching impacts of such machines the UK is currently undergoing a design study on the possibility of building it’s own multi-billion pound XFEL - UK XFEL. Join us as we’ll delve into the design, construction and implications of such a facility, the challenges ahead and the scientific boundaries that UK XFEL will be aim to push. Don't miss this opportunity to glimpse into the exciting possibilities that lie ahead as we build the tools of tomorrow and harness their potential to drive a positive change in society.
