PIER PHOTON SCIENCE COLLOQUIUM: Probing Melecules from Within using Ultra-Intense and Ultra-Fast X-Rays from LCLS FEL

by Nora Berrah (Western Michigan University, Physics Department)

Friday, December 9, 2011 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at 28c Flash Seminarroom
The response of molecular systems to the ultra-intense, femtosecond x-ray radiation from the hard x-ray FEL, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), was investigated. Sequential multiphoton ionization, frustrated absorption [1] and double core hole production mechanisms [2,3] will be presented.
