On June 7, 2024, we attended the 2024 SHINE Forum in ShanghaiTech University. The SHINE (Shanghai HIgh repetitioN rate XFEL and Extreme light facility) is a high rep-rate XFEL large scientific facility including an 8 GeV CW superconducting RF Linac, 3 undulator lines, 3 X-ray beamlines and 10 experimental stations, together with a 100 PW super-intense laser. Once built, it will be one of the most advanced user facilities that can deliver femtosecond X-ray pulses from 0.4 to 25 keV with up to a million pulses per second.
