In particular, the impact of the giant resonance on the ionisation mechanism was investigated.

Absolute cross-sections were measured by employing the photon–ion merged-beams technique.

Here, we present a pump-probe experiment on the UV-induced dissociation of 2,6-difluoroiodobenzene $(C_{6}H_{3}F_{2}I)$ molecules performed at the FLASH FEL that takes advantage of recent upgrades of the FLASH timing and synchronization system to obtain high-quality data that are not limited by the FEL arrival-time jitter.

In a commissioning experiment first results could be obtained for multiple photoionization of Xe$^{q+}$ ions (q = 1,2,..,5) at photon energies around the 3d ionization threshold.. OpenAccess: PDF; 2016-11-2814:44 [PUBDB-2016-05682] Journal Article et al Time-resolved x-ray imaging of a laser-induced nanoplasma and its neutral residuals New journal of physics 18(4), 043017 (2016) [10.1088/1367-2630/18/4/043017]   The evolution of individual, large gas-phase xenon clusters, turned into a nanoplasma by a high power infrared laser pulse, is tracked from femtoseconds up to nanoseconds after laser excitation via coherent diffractive imaging, using ultra-short soft x-ray free electron laser pulses. A decline of scattering signal at high detection angles with increasing time delay indicates a softening of the cluster surface.

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.

This manuscript presents the Photon Arrival and Length Monitor (PALM), the latest device to meet this challenge, a THz streak camera, and discusses the challenges in its design, use, and analysis of results [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); External link: Fulltext 2012-09-1919:06 [PHPPUBDB-15286] Journal Article et al Characterization of a two-color pump-probe setup at FLASH using a velocity map imaging spectrometer Optics letters 35, 4163-4165 (2010) [10.1364/OL.35.004163]   We report on the implementation of a high-count-rate charged particle imaging detector for two-color pump-probe experiments at the free electron laser in Hamburg (FLASH). In doing so, we have developed a procedure for finding the spatial and temporal overlap between the extreme UV free electron laser (FEL) pulses and the IR pulses, which allows for complete alignment of the setup in situations where the region of overlap between the FEL and the IR is not easily accessible by means of imaging optics..
