Elettra and FERMI lightsources
The Elettra lightsource is a 2/2.4 GeVthird-generation Italian synchrotron radiation facility.
It has been serving the national and international scientific and industrial communities starting from 1993,
with continuous upgrades up to the present day.
FERMI (Free Electron laser Radiation for Multidisciplinary Investigations) is the seeded free electron laser (FEL)
facility in operation for external users next to the third-generation synchrotron radiation facility Elettra.
Unique among the FEL sources currently operating in the ultraviolet and soft x-ray range worldwide,
FERMI has been developed to provide fully coherent ultrashort (10-100 femtosecond) pulses with a peak brightness
ten billion times higher than that made available by third-generation light sources.
