More than 2100 users have used DESY photon sources in 2013. All machine operating schedules of PETRA III and FLASH as well as beamtime schedules of single beamlines, are available here to facilitate the planning:
FLASH: user operation
The construction of the FLASH II tunnel and hall is almost completed and first user experiments are expected in 2015.
|FLASH Schedules 2014-2015|
PETRA III extension: resumption of PETRA III operation
The civil construction of the two new PETRA III extension experimental halls for additional 10 beamlines is almost completed.
These halls in the North and East are making use of the long straight sections and the adjacent arcs of the PETRA III storage ring. By modifying the storage ring lattice additional insertion devices for 5 beamlines in each hall can be accommodated.
The commissioning of the modified storage ring is completed and the resumption of regular user operation at beamlines P01-P14 in the Max von Laue experimental hall is scheduled for 27 April 2015. This user run will end on 12 November 2015.
Commissioning of the first two new beamlines P64/P65 in the PETRA III extension hall North is planned to start in fall 2015.
