AB  - Femtosecond pulsed optical synchronization systems have evolved over the last few years and are now a mature technique to synchronize FELs. A large-scale femtosecond-precision synchronization system with up to 44 end-stations has been constructed at the European XFEL to meet the FEL synchronization stability requirements. The synchronization system is used to phase-lock various laser systems with femtosecond accuracy, to precisely measure the electron bunch arrival time along the accelerator for fast arrival time feedbacks and to locally phase stabilize the phase of the RF reference signals for the accelerator RF controls on a femtosecond level. The architecture of the large-scale synchronization system and design choices made to achieve the reliability, maintainability and performance requirements are presented together with measurement results from the past year of operation.
