First undulators and beamlines

First Undulators and Beamlines

  • Concentrate on SASE radiation

    • provide as large as possible photon energy range

    • for soft X-rays start with linear polarization

    • enable use of harm./spont. emission in SASE beamlines

Femtochemistry

Femtochemistry

  • Capturing chemical reactions on film

A chemical reaction is triggered by a laser flash. A second laser pulse is then sent at varying intervals after the first one to take instantaneous snapshots.

"Filming" chemical reactions using ultra-fast lasers.

Structural biology

Structural Biology

  • Shedding light on biomolecules

Protein DNA complexes are often very large and difficult to crystallize. The X-ray laser opens up possibilities to unravel their structure and function in the living organism without the need for crystallization.

Biomolecules are destroyed by intense X-ray radiation. In order to obtain a usable image of the biomolecule, the image must be recorded very quickly.

Material reserach

Material Reserach

  • Developing new materials

Various models explaining stick-slip friction.This phenomenon arises when a sliding film alternately melts (due to shear force) and freezes. A better understanding of the sliding phase (c) and how to prevent freezing (d) could help reduce frictional losses. Using intense X-ray radiation physicists investigate friction on an atomic level.

Cluster physics

Cluster Physics

  • When less is more

When matter is irradiated with very intense light, unusual processes occur which do not happen after irradiation with less intense light.

Model calculation of a copper particle with 17000 atoms - a cluster which plays a role in catalytic processes.

Plasma physics

Plasma Physics

  • A different state of matter

With an X-ray laser, plasmas can be created that are as hot as the interiors of giant stars. At the same time, it will be possible to investigate the plasmas so created at varying intervals with another part of the laser beam and thus to conduct research into the plasma state.
