Superconducting Accelerator to Power World's Strongest X-ray Laser

After over a decade of collaborative effort among national laboratories and institutions, the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is on the verge of launching the Linac Coherent Light Source II (LCLS-II), a project set to power the world's most potent X-ray free electron laser. This superconducting accelerator, cooled to an extremely low temperature by helium, will accelerate electrons through niobium cavities, enabling the production of X-rays brighter and faster than ever before. We believe these new applications of helium will drive demand soon.
