The Main component of the new x-ray laser XFEL (X-ray Free-Electron Laser), the so-called electron injector was first included in the work. The injector is an electron gun and pre-accelerator, a length of 45 meters, which is part of a larger accelerator, the length of which after construction will be about 2 kilometers. After a start operation, the injector produced the first "packages" of free electrons and successfully dispersed them to speeds approaching the speed of light, and this achievement is a major milestone towards the completion of the construction of the future's most powerful x-ray laser in the world.
