MIUR International Project FERMI

The International Project FERMI begins in 2015, year of conclusion of the Flagship Project. Building on the results of the latter, the former represents the outlook into the future in the final stage of “user-assisted commissioning” of the FERMI source. La strategy will be based on:
  • the commissioning experience;
  • the operation for users;
  • the interest of the user community for
  1. special FEL configurations;
  2. higher photon energies.

Other Italian public research institutions involved

The International Project FERMI will consolidate the collaborations, formal as well as informal, initiated within the Flagship Project with INFN, ENEA, CNR, INSTM and several Italian Universities exploiting at best the previous experiences.

Strategic objectives

The upgrade plan encompasses perspectives for the next 3 to 5 years. Its main directions are focused towards:
  • further improve the source reliability;
  • enhance FEL-1 performance in special configurations;
  • extend FEL-2 range to lower wavelengths;
  • explore alternative schemes.
