Review of Proposals Members of Proposal Review Panel Christine Back (San Diego) Janos Kirz (LBNL) Maged Chergui (ETH Lausanne)Dwayne Miller (Toronto) Lew Cocke (Kansas) Juerg Osterwalder (University of Zuerich) Gianluca Gregori (Oxford, UK) Metin Tolan (University of Dortmund) Chi-Chang Kao (BNL) Kyoshi Ueda (Tohku University, Sendai) Steve Kevan (Oregon) Edgar Weckert (DESY) Two representatives of LCLS management without voting rights: Jerry Hastings Jochen Schneider First Meeting December 3-4, 2008 For the 1st meeting dealing mainly with proposals for AMO experiments three guests with voting rights were invited: Chris Greene (JILA) Jon Marangos (Imperial College London) Ian McNulty (APS, Argonne Nat. Lab.)
Results of 1st PRP Meeting • 3 “more technical” proposals were recommended to be included in early commissioning work • In 2 cases it was recommended to combine two, so far separate proposals with similar scientific goals • 2 single purpose experiments got highest ranking and were invited to discuss the technical implications for integrating the experiments into beamline at a later stage • Taking the above recommendations into account there were 23 “scientific” proposals for about 225 8 hour shifts starting September 1, 2009. The PRP allocated the following rankings to these proposals: • Ranking 1: 11 proposals, including two with specific instrumentation • Ranking 2: 5 proposals, including one “team proposal” • Ranking 3: 2 proposals • Ranking 4: 5 proposals 10 experimentsscheduled • 7 experiments use the AMO instrument as built by LCLS, 3 experiments use the CAMP chamber built by CFEL in Hamburg
The 10 Experiments Scheduled for 2009 • Linda Young (Argonne NL)Tracking transient atomic states produced by ultraintense X-ray pulses • Louis DiMauro (Ohio State Univ.)Strong-field multiphoton processes in the high-frequency limit • Nora Berrah (Western Michigan Univ.)X-ray non-linear physics studies of molecules with intense ultrafast LCLS pulses • Ryan Coffee (PULSE-SLAC)X-ray multiple ionization of impulsively aligned molecules • Linda Young (Argonne NL)Resonant nonlinear X-ray processes at high X-ray intensity
The 10 Experiments Scheduled for 2009 • John Bozek (LCLS)IR laser and FEL X-ray pulse cross correlation using electron energysidebandsStefan Duesterer (DESY)Dressed photo- and Auger-electrons in intense superposed X-ray andoptical laser fields and their application on timing • Todd Ditmire (Austin, Texas)Explosions of clusters in intense X-ray pulses • Christoph Bostedt (TU Berlin)Ultrafast imaging of X-ray excited clusters • Henry Chapman (CFEL-DESY), Jochen Kuepper (ASG MPG)Diffractive imaging of oriented molecules in the gas phase • Henry Chapman (CFEL-DESY) Coherent diffractive imaging
