Science at X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) continues to develop at a remarkable pace, providing powerful new insight to electronic and atomic structural dynamics and correlations that underpin complex mater. Following the first decade of operation, the science impact of LCLS continues to flourish, spanning the science areas of structural biology, chemical dynamics, materials science, catalysis, quantum materials, atomic physics, and matter in extreme environments. This talk will present some of the recent LCLS science highlights in these areas.

A major upgrade of LCLS (LCLS-II) is now nearing completion. LCLS-II is being developed as a high repetition rate ultrafast X-ray laser with two simultaneously operating, independently tunable FELs producing uniformly spaced (or programmable) ultrafast X-ray laser pulses at a repetition rate up to ~1 MHz spanning the energy range from 0.25 to 5 keV. The new science opportunities enabled by the capabilities of LCLS-II, and supported by a new suite of instruments now being commissioned, will be discussed. A further upgrade (LCLS-II-HE) has now been launched, and will extend high-repetition-rate operation to energies above 12 keV. Exciting new science opportunities for probing structural dynamics at the atomic scale will be discussed.
