SwissFEL is the new X-ray free electron laser facility currently under construction at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland. Its baseline design aims to produce FEL pulses covering the wavelength range 1 Å to 70 Å. The design is with a total length of just under 740 meters relatively compact and therefore affordable on the scale of a national laboratory.
Two test facilities were built for SwissFEL, in order to develop new technologies and to test theoretical predictions and simulations. The first test facility, the Low Emittance Gun (LEG) is in operation since Spring 2009. The SwissFEL injector test facility was officially inaugurated on the 24th of August 2010.
