View Presentation Abstract
In my lecture I will concentrate on accelerator-based light sources (with a focus on DESY). Here we will see novel particle accelerators in the next 10-15 years: (a) ring facilities with a revolutionary electron lattice exceeding the brilliance of previous synchrotron radiation sources by one hundred, (b) linear accelerators for X-ray laser sources which will routinely enable real-time imaging of molecular structures and processes in the femtosecond range, and disruptive developments in plasma accelerators with completely new fields of application, especially in medical technology.
