The Alvra end station of SwissFEL specializes in measuring the ultrafast dynamics of photochemical and photobiological systems using a variety of X-ray scattering and spectroscopic techniques.

The Alvra group has a diverse range of members, with experience in everything from attosecond science to ultrafast photochemical dynamics. It designed the Alvra end station, operates, maintains, and further develops it. The Alvra group collaborates with and supports researchers that got beamtime granted in a peer-review process.
