  DESY - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
DESY is a member of the Helmholtz Research Associaction and was founded in Hamburg on December 18, 1959.
DESY was previously financed directly by the ministry; now it is indirectly financed by the ministry, as the association is funded by the ministry.
The main scientific achievement at DESY was the discovery of the gluon at the PETRA particle accelerator in 1979.

 DESY - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nowadays DESY's most important facilities are the acclerator HERA, the synchrotron-research lab HASYLAB and the free-electron laser VUV-FEL, the test facility for the planned XFEL.
DESY is involved in the project International Linear Collider (ILC).
DESY is planning the construction of an X-ray laser, the XFEL (X-ray Free-Electron Laser), which is supposed to be 3 km long when finished.

 SLAC and German laboratory to collaborate on X-ray lasers: 11/02   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The Deutsches-Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), Germany's leading particle physics and synchrotron radiation laboratory, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) signed a laboratory-to-laboratory Memorandum of Understanding on Nov. 1 to establish a unique international collaboration for the development of X-ray free-electron lasers.
DESY and SLAC are world-leading laboratories in the development and operation of electron accelerators for research in high-energy physics and in the many fields of science that make use of synchrotron radiation.
The agreement sets the framework for practical collaboration between DESY and SLAC on the many technical challenges to be faced in fully exploiting the capabilities of X-ray free-electron lasers.

 DESY | Test Beam | Description
A bremsstrahlung beam is generated by a carbon fibre in the circulating beam of the electron/positron synchrotron DESY II.
The electron/positron synchrotron DESY II is mainly an injector for DORIS and PETRA.
The incoming and outgoing beams for DESY II have to pass through the magnets or the magnetic field of the proton synchrotron DESY III, which is for some reasons on the same height (Picture: Beam lines in the DESY tunnel).

 dCache White Paper
Analysing the mount log-files of the DESY powderhorn robot leads to the result that the number of write related mounts would have been reduced to 10% of its original value using less than 100 GBytes of cache disk.
Investigations on the DESY access profile from March to December 2000 proved that there is very little benefit from staging as long as the Caching Algorithm is not tuned according to the particular storage class access profiles.
In the case of Enstore, Eurogate and the DESY version of OSM, the file data access (read,write) is limited to special APIs or applications and is not allowed through the NFS window.

 CERN Courier - Unity in diversity - DESY tu - IOP Publishing - article
On 18 December 1959 the state contract was signed and DESY was born.
She commended the "diversity" - the symbiosis of different research areas at DESY - a theme echoed by Hamburg deputy mayor Krista Sager, who stressed the benefit of doing applied as well as basic research.
Sager also acknowledged the impact of DESY on Hamburg: every local resident has heard of DESY and is proud of the laboratory.

 CERN Courier - DESY's founding father - IOP Publishing - article
This allowed DESY to hold its own against the competition of the Stanford Linear Accelerator, which was built somewhat later and had a superior beam energy.
This policy, which emphasized the service function of DESY, proved to be a decisive advantage for the future because it attracted talent from all over Germany and, later on, internationally.
Decades before the word "outreach" was coined, he saw to it that the work of DESY was communicated to the public: there were open days at DESY for the laboratory's neighbours, articles in popular magazines and the beginning of a public relations group.

 PR-DESY-06-1
The 300-meter-long facility at DESY generated laser flashes with a wavelength of 32 nanometers (billionths of a meter) for the first time in January 2005 - this is the shortest wavelength ever achieved with a free-electron laser.
The investigation of such time resolved processes with radiation of short wavelengths is one of the most important new applications that will be possible in the future with this kind of X-ray lasers.
Until user experiments resume in May 2006, the DESY team will now carry out machine studies to further improve the stability of the facility, increase the energy of the light pulses and further shorten the wavelength of the radiation to around 15 nanometers.
