Probing Matter from Within using Ultra-Intense and Ultra-Fast X-Rays from the LCLS Free Electron Laser Séminaires SPAM LFP

LIDYL Bât 522, p 138 CEA-Saclay

Short x-ray pulses from free electron lasers (FEL) open a new regime for investigating multi-photon processes. The first x-ray FEL, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), is in operation, providing intense short pulses for investigating the creation and decay of multiple core-holes.

The response of molecular systems to the ultra-intense, femtosecond x-ray radiation was investigated. Sequential multiphoton ionization, frustrated absorption [1] and double core hole production mechanisms [2,3] will be presented.
