Accelerator Beam Dynamics at the European X-Ray Free Electron Laser [DESY-18-178]   We consider the collective beam dynamics in the accelerator of the European X-ray Free Electron Laser for electron bunches with charges of 250 and 500 pC. The dynamics has been studied numerically with different computer programs, and we struggle to include properly the whole beam physics with collective effects.

Combination of these pulses, along with the auxiliary NIR and VIS ultrashort lasers, supports a plethora of dynamic investigations in physics, material science and biology.

It is a fast, low-noise integrating detector, with an adaptive gain amplifier per pixel.

The molecules were pumped with linear polarized laser pulses creating an excited state population with a preferred orientational (alignment) direction [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-01-3015:23 [PUBDB-2019-00875] Journal Article et al Roadmap of ultrafast x-ray atomic and molecular physics Journal of physics / B 51(3), 032003 (2018) [10.1088/1361-6455/aa9735]   X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) and table-top sources of x-rays based upon high harmonic generation (HHG) have revolutionized the field of ultrafast x-ray atomic and molecular physics, largely due to an explosive growth in capabilities in the past decade. XFELs now provide unprecedented intensity (1020 W cm−2) of x-rays at wavelengths down to ~1 Ångstrom, and HHG provides unprecedented time resolution (~50 attoseconds) and a correspondingly large coherent bandwidth at longer wavelengths [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-01-3015:18 [PUBDB-2019-00874] Journal Article et al Stimulated X-Ray Emission Spectroscopy in Transition Metal Complexes Physical review letters 120(13), 133203 (2018) [10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.133203]   We report the observation and analysis of the gain curve of amplified $Kα$ x-ray emission from solutions of Mn(II) and Mn(VII) complexes using an x-ray free electron laser to create the $1s$ core-hole population inversion. We find spectra at amplification levels extending over 4 orders of magnitude until saturation [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-01-2909:28 [PUBDB-2019-00839] Journal Article et al Author Correction: Generation and characterization of ultrathin free-flowing liquid sheets ist Nature Communications 9(1), 2860 (2018) [10.1038/s41467-018-05365-4]   The physics and chemistry of liquid solutions play a central role in science, and our understanding of life on Earth. Unfortunately, key tools for interrogating aqueous systems, such as infrared and soft X-ray spectroscopy, cannot readily be applied because of strong absorption in water.

Anorthite and albite were compressed in a diamond anvil cell to 80 GPa at multiple rates from 0.05 GPa/s to 80 GPa/s.

X-ray investigations revealed a discontinuous first-order transition into the hexatic phase [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA);
