Howto grok an experiment at an FEL

James Wrigley and Cyril Danilevski

The European XFEL is the latest generation of light sources. It can generate up to 27,000 extremely short and intense X-ray light pulses which are used to address scientific challenges, such as unveiling the atomic structures of viruses. Each experiment can generate hundreds of terabytes or even petabytes of data, and in this talk we'll discuss the challenges of storing and analyzing that data.
