Communication: Direct evidence for sequential dissociation of gas-phase Fe(CO)$_5$ via a singlet pathway upon excitation at 266 nm
ddc:540
We prove the hitherto hypothesized sequential dissociation of Fe(CO)$_5$ in the gas phase upon photoexcitation at 266 nm via a singlet pathway with time-resolved valence and core-level photoelectron spectroscopy with an x-ray free-electron laser. 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 [...]

Catalysis in real time using X-ray lasers
ddc:540
We describe how the unique temporal and spectral characteristics of X-ray free-electron lasers (XFEL) can be utilized to follow chemical transformations in heterogeneous catalysis in real time. We highlight the systematic study of CO oxidation on Ru(0 0 0 1), which we initiate either using a femtosecond pulse from an optical laser or by activating only the oxygen atoms using a THz pulse [...]

First Operation of a Harmonic Lasing Self-Seeded Free Electron Laser
ddc:530
Harmonic lasing is a possible mode of operation of X-ray FEL user facilities that allows us to provide brilliant beams of higher energy photons for user experiments. Another useful application of harmonic lasing is the so-called harmonic lasing self-seeded free electron laser (HLSS FEL) that allows the improvement of spectral brightness of these facilities. [...]

Anti-Stokes resonant x-ray Raman scattering for atom specific and excited state selective dynamics
ddc:530
Ultrafast electronic and structural dynamics of matter govern rate and selectivity of chemical reactions, as well as phase transitions and efficient switching in functional materials. Since x-rays determine electronic and structural properties with elemental, chemical, orbital and magnetic selectivity, short pulse x-ray sources have become central enablers of ultrafast science.

Chemical Bond Activation Observed with an X-ray Laser
ddc:530
The concept of bonding and antibonding orbitals is fundamental in chemistry. The population of those orbitals and the energetic difference between the two reflect the strength of the bonding interaction. [...]

Orbital-specific mapping of the ligand exchange dynamics of $Fe(CO)_{5}$ in solution
Nature 520(7545), 78 - 81 (2015) [10.1038/nature14296]  GO
ddc:070
Transition-metal complexes have long attracted interest for fundamental chemical reactivity studies and possible use in solar energy conversion1, 2. Electronic excitation, ligand loss from the metal centre, or a combination of both, creates changes in charge and spin density at the metal site3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 that need to be controlled to optimize complexes for photocatalytic hydrogen production8 and selective carbon–hydrogen bond activation9, 10, 11.

Identification of the dominant photochemical pathways and mechanistic insights to the ultrafast ligand exchange of Fe(CO)$_{5}$ to Fe(CO)$_{4}$EtOH
ddc:530
We utilized femtosecond time-resolved resonant inelastic X-ray scattering and ab initio theory to study the transient electronic structure and the photoinduced molecular dynamics of a model metal carbonyl photocatalyst Fe(CO)$_5$ in ethanol solution. We propose mechanistic explanation for the parallel ultrafast intra-molecular spin crossover and ligation of the Fe(CO)$_4$ which are observed following a charge transfer photoexcitation of Fe(CO)$_5$ as reported in our previous study [Wernet et al., Nature 520, 78 (2015)].

Role of heat accumulation in the multi-shot damage of silicon irradiated with femtosecond XUV pulses at a 1 MHz repetition rate
Optics express 24(14), 15468 - 15477 (2016) [10.1364/OE.24.015468]  GO

The role played by heat accumulation in multi-shot damage of silicon was studied. Bulk silicon samples were exposed to intense XUV monochromatic radiation of a 13.5 nm wavelength in a series of 400 femtosecond pulses, repeated with a 1 MHz rate (pulse trains) at the FLASH facility in Hamburg. [...]

A new ultra-low temperature experiment including a superconducting vector magnet has been developed for soft x-ray absorption spectroscopy experiments at third generation synchrotron light sources. The sample is cooled below 50 mK by a cryogen free 3He-4He dilution refrigerator. [...]
