Video: Exascale for Free Electron Lasers Project

The Exascale for Free Electron Lasers (ExaFEL) project aims to stream data from the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) beamlines to a supercomputer via ESnet (the US Department of Energy’s dedicated science network), perform data processing, and provide fast feedback to users in quasi real time (less than 10 minutes).

X-rays from LCLS, which is located at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University, enable completely new areas of science, opening frontiers in imaging single nanoscale particles and in understanding chemistry on the natural timescales of reactions.

A video from the ExaFEL team and the SLAC media group describes ExaFEL’s year-end demonstration.
