To better serve user needs, and to allow automated and high-throughput operation, a sample changer (BioSAXS Sample Changer) that is able to perform unattended measurements of up to several hundred samples per day has been developed.

We analyze severalhundred diffraction patterns at individual sample locations, that is,individual grains, to obtain a meaningful statistical distribution of thesuperlattice and atomic lattice ordering.

The essential element of these devices are micrometer-sized electron bunches with high peak currents, low energy spread, and low emittance.

Valence photoelectron spectra are used to identify free CO molecules and to determine the time constants of stepwise dissociation to Fe(CO)$_4$ within the temporal resolution of the experiment and further to Fe(CO)$_3$ within 3 ps [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2017-06-0614:18 [PUBDB-2017-04342] Contribution to a conference proceedings et al OCELOT as a Framework for Beam Dynamics Simulations of X-RAY Sources 8th International Particle Accelerator Conference , IPAC17, Meeting locationCopenhagen, Denmark, 15 May 2017 - 19 May 2017 4 p. (2017) [10.3204/PUBDB-2017-04342]   We describe the OCELOT open source project focusing on new beam dynamics simulation capabilities of the whole machine in modern electron-based x-ray sources. Numerical approaches for particle tracking and field calculations are discussed.

Colloidal crystals were pumped with aninfrared laser at a wavelength of 800 nm with varying power and probed by XFEL pulses at anenergy of 8 keV with a time delay up to 1000 ps.

Radiation by Moving Charges [DESY-17-047; arXiv:1704.01843]   It is generally accepted that the dynamics of relativistic particles in the lab frame can be described by taking into account the relativistic dependence of the particles momenta on the velocity, with no reference to Lorentz transformations. The electrodynamics problem can then be treated within a 'single inertial frame' description.

The tuning procedures typically employed in operation are often manual and lengthy.

By applying angular X-ray cross-correlation analysis (XCCA) to the measured diffraction patterns the parameters of the bond-orientational (BO) order in the hexatic phase were directly determined [...] 2017-02-1310:11 [PUBDB-2017-00953] Journal Article et al Atomic Structure of Granulin Determined from Native Nanocrystalline Granulovirus Using an X-ray Free-Electron Laser   To understand how molecules function in biological systems, new methods are required to obtain atomic resolution structures from biological material under physiological conditions. Intense femtosecond-duration pulses from X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) can outrun most damage processes, vastly increasing the tolerable dose before the specimen is destroyed [...]
