FEL pulse temporal profile made in a FLASH

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
The temporal profile of an individual free-electron laser (FEL) pulse now can be measured with femtosecond precision using FLASH, a soft-x-ray FEL. The technique could be used to film atoms in motion or to study chemical reactions and phase transitions. Ultrashort and ultra-intense x-ray pulses delivered by FELs provide unique research opportunities. Trillions of x-ray photons are packed within a single burst, which lasts for only several tens of femtoseconds, or even less. However, the precise arrival time and the temporal profile of the pulses can change dramatically from one pulse to...Read full article
