Laser-Ion Interaction Produces Coherent X-Rays

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Daniel S. Burgess

A team at Albert Ludwigs Universität Freiburg in Germany has proposed a means of generating femtosecond pulses of coherent x-rays with wavelengths less than 0.1 nm for chemical and biological imaging. If successful, the technique promises to enable the time-resolved imaging of matter on an atomic scale. The interaction of intense laser pulses and multiply charged ions may serve as a coherent source of hard x-rays for the atomic-scale, time-resolved imaging of matter. The graph depicts the effective potential of the ionic potential and the laser field at maximum strength, the bound ground...Read full article
