View along the FLASHForward beamline (IMAGE) Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY Caption The FLASHForward beamline (right in the picture) is located next to the second undulator line (left) of the free-electron laser FLASH. The FLASHForward beamline is used to transport the electron bunches from the FLASH linear accelerator to the FLASHForward interaction area for interaction with plasma. The beaming consists primarily of magnets, such as quadrupoles for maintaining the ultra-small bunch sizes during transport and dipoles for bending the bunches onto desired trajectories.
