Center for Free-Electron Laser Science hosts former SLAC director Persis Drell
The Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) has a prominent visitor. Persis Drell, the former director of SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (USA), has joined DESY scientist Henry Chapman’s group as a Helmholtz International Fellow. Drell, who led SLAC from September 2007 to October 2012, is a Professor of Physics, Particle Physics, and Astrophysics at Stanford University and SLAC. She will be staying at CFEL until March 2013.
