SLAC Photon Systems Manager
Includes LCLS x-ray and laser groups
The X-Ray Endstation Systems group provides the infrastructure required for experimenters to make best scientific use of the LCLS radiation safely. Includes advanced x-ray detector R&D.
The Laser group coordinates laser design and acquisition throughout the LCLS. Lasers will be used in the electron gun and x-ray experimental areas, and also possibly for accelerator diagnostics and alignment.
LCLS Ultrafast Science Instruments is a distinct DOE project closely coordinated with LCLS. It will build 4 science instruments which will occupy LCLS x-ray hutches. This will enable work in three of the LCLS Science Thrust Areas: X-ray pump-probe dynamics, Coherent x-ray imaging, and X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy. The project is ramping up, with major funding expected in FY2007.
Gas attenuator prototype
LCLS and LUSI are working on an updated beam-splitting plan, and a way will be found to implement it
This includes not only splitting of the beam to the FEH, but also splitting into a soft x-ray line and hard x-ray line in the NEH
Will allow quicker changes between experiments
Has become possible as experiment designs are beginning to crystallize
